Welcome from Mrs. Blair
Welcome to the wonderful world of Pre-K! My name is Teressa Blair. I was born and raised in Siloam Springs, Arkansas and am still an avid Razorback fan. I attended college in Bethany, Oklahoma and graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education in 1982. I taught kindergarten for one year at the laboratory school on campus while doing graduate studies. I came to Owasso in 1983 and taught at Barnes Elementary for 4 years. After taking a few years off to be a stay-at-home mom, I came back to teaching in 1992 at Hodson Elementary. I continued teaching at Hodson until Northeast Elementary opened in 2001 and I moved over here. This year will be my 34th year of teaching!!
On a personal note I am married with 3 grown children. My husband, Frank Blair, teaches Outdoor Ed at the 8th grade center and coaches football. My oldest son Brett is married to our lovely daughter-in-law Chriss. Brett is a meteorologist and works for the Oklahoma Dept. of Environmental Quality in the Ozone Division. Chriss is a nurse at the heart hospital in Norman. My second son Taylor has a degree in Music Education from the University of Arkansas. He is a worship pastor at a church in Roanoke Virginia. Our beautiful daughter Jenna works for Amazon and has achieved her brown belt in Taekwondo.
Pre-K is such an exciting year! Everything will be new and exciting through the eyes of your child. Whether this is your first child in school or your last, I encourage you to relax and enjoy the journey. One of my favorite quotes is: "Childhood should be a journey, not a race." We want our students to have so much fun at school, that they forget they are learning at the same time. Our classroom is a very busy place! We have a good mixture of large group activities, small center-based groups, small teacher-directed groups, and independent activities. We look forward to a great school year!!!
