Mrs. Kristen Blazek
Welcome! My name is Kristen Blazek and I am the Elementary Support Teacher at Buchanan. In my job, I wear many hats. I support children academically, behaviorally, and social/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 25 years, 24 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, daughter Ashley, and son Dalton. Outside of school, I love watching my son play soccer and march in the drumline. We have a very energetic dog named Diezel.
I look forward to working with you and your family.
