Welcome to Mrs. Blickenstaff's Fourth
 Grade Classroom! 

The 2013-2014 school year is underway and I am excited to have your child in my classroom! A little tidbit about me is I graduated with my bachelors degree from Bemidji State University, and obtained my masters in Curriculum Instruction from St. Kate's University.  This is my third year here in Verndale teaching fourth grade.  I taught kindergarten for three years at East Central School, Finlayson, MN.  I am married and have a stepson named Houstin who is 9 years old and in third grade as well as a 5 month old named Ashlynn.
