Mr. David Blue
I graduated from The Ohio State University in 1993 with a Bachelors of Arts degree in History. After a year of working in a regular job, I decided to go back and get another degree. I graduated with my Masters in Education from John Carroll University in 1995. During my 24 years, I have had several teaching partners. Jane Bleyle (deceased 2012) was an excellent mentor to me for 5 years. Kadee Anstadt (Sherer-Malm-Patchen) motivated me to become a better teacher with her creativity and passion for education for 5 more years. In 2005, Rebecca Ulrich and I teamed up and taught together for 8 years. Since moving to fifth grade six years ago, I have taught with Don Haines, Mary Gladstone, Dannielle Harrison, and now Chelsea Koss. I have also had the opportunity to work with four fantastic educational aides in Karla Corl, Cheryl Patterson, Valerie Hilliard, & Jennifer Hockstra. This school year will be my third working with one of the most talented teachers at East Woods in Mrs. Marie Rourke. Marie brings so many years of experience, passion for teaching, and creative ideas to our teaching team. For the 2018-2019 school year, we are adding Chelsea Koss to our teaching team as well. We are very excited for the school year to begin, and we hope all our students are excited about learning in fifth grade as well.
Currently, I reside in Hudson with my wife Annette (herself a Hudson Middle School 6th Grade Math Teacher), my daughter Ainsley (15), and son Preston (12). Annette has taught in Hudson since 1996. She has her Bachelors of Science in Education from Kent State University and her Masters of Education-Administration from the University of Akron.
