Rhonda Blanton

I've been teaching middle school for sixteen years in a small rural K-8 school in eastern Kentucky, and currently teach writing to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. I graduated from Morehead State University in Kentucky and have a B.A. in Middle School Language Arts/ Social Studies, a Master's Degree in Writing, and a Rank I in Curriculum and Instruction. I have two grown children, two grandchildren (Dakota and Draydon), 3 dogs and 2 cats.
