Mrs. Deborah Blackstock
Welcome to Mrs. Blackstock's 6th Grade class!
I was born and raised in Poquoson, Virginia and married a "Bull Islander" on Valentine's Day 30 years ago. I've taught for over 15 years since graduating from CNU and this is my tenth year in Poquoson.
Thanks to my husband's military career in the United States Air Force, we moved to Germany in 1992 where my teaching career began at Bitburg Middle School. While there, I taught language arts, reading, and social studies to 6th graders. We have lived in many wonderful places where I've enjoyed a variety of teaching experiences across many different grade levels.
Along the way, we had our two sons-Jesse and Brett. Jesse is a graduate of Longwood University where he majored in Education. He is currently enjoying his second year teaching math and science to 5th grade students in Madison, Va. Brett is a senior at Dakota State University (South Dakota) pursuing a double major in Video Game Design/Computer Science. We're all able to spend our summers together and we enjoy traveling to a variety of locations creating lots of family memories!
I'm excited to be teaching 6th grade U.S. History again this year! I look forward to working with your student and building a successful partnership with your family as the year progresses to ensure your child has a very positive learning experience!
