April Blickenstaff

    Room 106




    Welcome to First Grade! My name is April Blickenstaff and I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year! I was born and raised in southern California. I graduated from BYU in Provo, Utah in Elementary Education. I’ve lived in Houston for 16 years and taught school for 11 years. I’ve taught first, second and fourth grades. I’ve been married for 18 years and have 4 children. I love reading, online shopping, crafting, going to the movies and anything chocolate! 

    I’m so excited for this year. My goal is to help enhance your child’s development, empower and encourage them with enriching and engaging activities in a safe and stimulating environment. I desire all to feel welcome, successful and develop their love of learning. I’m can’t wait to start our adventure together this year!
