Mrs. Blankenship's Lower Montessori Class

Hello My Name Is...

Judy Blankenship

1990 graduate of USC-Aiken,SC Early Childhood, National Board certified 2001 Early Childhood Generalist, Masters Degree in Science from Walden University in 2007 and Lower Montessori certified in 2016.

I was born in Sandi, Japan and moved to Beaufort when I was 7.  I attended Beaufort Elementary as a child and always wanted to come back and teach here. I graduated from Beaufort High School in 1973 and married my high school sweetheart.  We raised 3 children before I returned to college for my degree in education. I began teaching at Beaufort Elementary in August of 1990.  My dream came true to give back a part of the education I had received as a child at Beaufort Elementary.  I have taught at BES for 27 years and hope to continue for a couple of more years!  Three years ago I began teaching the lower Montessori class and fell in love with teaching all over again.  Teaching in a Montessori classroom has opened my heart to all styles of learning for children!
