It’s going to be a great year!
My name is Michael(Mike) Blair. My family and I have lived in Red Oak for 16 years. We love our city and school district so much, that I pursued my teaching certificate to work in our District.
I love my family very much and look forward to every minute I get to spend with them. My wife of 19 years, Chere, is a professor at Southwestern Assemblies of God University in Waxahachie. my sons Aidan(13) and Asher(10) are both students at the Middle school and Eastridge Elementary. We are animal lovers with a Bloodhound, Mountain Cur and Tuxedo cat.
I am a graduate of SAGU class of ‘07. I have been substitute teaching in ROISD for the past 3 years and long term assignments the last 2 years.
My path to the classroom has not been a typical one. I have been a minister for 19 years in a local church in DeSoto. I owned my own successful business for many years, but felt the call to transition into the classroom as a teacher. I found my home in Schupmann early on in my pursuit and have called it my school for the past 2 years as I have filled many temporary classroom roles on campus. Finally I am able to officially have my own classroom with students I love and teammates that encourage me to be a better teacher daily.
I believe in using technology as much as I can in the classroom. With our evolving culture leaning more towards technology, I believe students should be exposed to it often. My goal is to help my students become better scholars and members of our community.
