Blount, Denita

A defining moment in education…

When I first graduated from college, I began work as a teacher in a rural community in a one-room schoolhouse. I had the opportunity to co-teach in the classroom and during home visits, travel to various community organizations and work with various teams to support student development. I realized the important role that all members of a community play in supporting, building, and promoting the learning and growth of students.

Why I work at AHS…

I believe that each student brings unique experiences, perspectives, and strengths to the classroom. I enjoy supporting a student’s development, engagement, ability to communicate, independence and enthusiasm for lifelong learning.
