Ms. Blaydes

Ms. Blaydes, born in St. Louis, MO, moved to Illinois at the age of six.  I am a mother of two adults (son 29, daughter 26). I have been a product of education since (1989). Since I was in the 5th grade my goal was to become a teacher and give back to children.

I was very fortunate to have a teacher who went beyond the call of duty to make sure I was given the best education that I could have received.  I told her I wanted to become a teacher just like her and her response was: “Robin, you should want to be a teacher who can make a difference in all children you teach.
