Welcome to Mrs. Blickenstaff's Fourth
 Grade Classroom! 

The 2014-2015 school year is underway and I am excited to have your child in my classroom! A little tidbit about myself 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 fourth 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 10 years old and in fourth grade as well as a 1 year old named Ashlynn.
