Mrs. Kristen Blazek

Welcome!  My name is Kristen Blazek and I am one of the Elementary Support Teachers at Buchanan.  In my job, I wear many hats.  I support children academically, behaviorally, and socially emotionally.  Although I am not a therapist, I can help your child with basic friendship skills and things that they might be struggling with at school.  If your child has a more serious issue, I can provide a list of therapists that could be of assistance.  If your child has a medical issue and is required to have medicine at school, please email me and I can get you the correct forms in order to help keep your child safe.  

I have been teaching for 29 years, 28 of them have been at Buchanan.  I have been a Reading Recovery teacher and have taught kindergarten, second, fourth and sixth grades.  I received my undergraduate degree from Michigan State University (Go Green!)  and my M.A. from Eastern Michigan.

I grew up in Canton and currently reside in Commerce Township with my husband Jeff and daughter Ashley.  My son Dalton is a senior at Western Michigan University. I have a dog named Diezel.  Outside of school, I enjoy walking, swimming in our pool and doing projects with my cricut.  

The best way to get in touch with me is by email.  I look forward to working with you and your family.
