Hello! My name is Melanie Kimberlin. I am one of the resource teachers here at Blake. I was born and raised in Woodhaven, Michigan. I moved to La Paz County 16 years ago to be closer to my parents. I graduated from Northern Arizona University with my Bachelor of Education. I am certified to teach K-8 General Education & K-12 Special Education; with endorsements for ELL and Early Childhood Education. This is my 4th year teaching at Blake; however, I have taught for 14 years. I am married and have 3 children and three grandchildren. Outside of school, I volunteer as a 4H leader. I enjoy going to the movies, the river, and camping; and I'm currently busy working on my special education master's degree through NAU.
