Miss Denita Blount

Hello Preschool Families,

My name is Denita Blount and I am an Early Childhood Special Education Teacher here at Donaldson Elementary School. I am originally from Washington State and have been living and teaching in Tucson for two years. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Educational Studies, and my Master’s degree in the areas of Early Intervention and Early Childhood Special Education from the University of Oregon. I have been teaching since 2001.

I look forward to learning and growing with your child and family this school year. I believe that all children are highly capable and bring important perspectives, strengths, skills and experiences to the classroom. It is my goal to support and build on these abilities and provide an instructional experience that best meets your families and child’s needs.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I have a son who is twelve years of age. He enjoys music, art, riding his scooter and skateboarding. I enjoy bicycling, playing guitar, hiking, reading books and cooking.  We both love to travel, swim and gain new experiences together.

Please feel free to email, call or message me any time with questions, comments or concerns. Let's stay connected through Class Tag for learning activities and updates. Feel free to email me if you need support with accessing the site.
