Ms. Phoebe Blalock
Hi! I am Ms. Blalock, your school librarian. While I am fairly new to the library, I am not new to Brockman. I was a Lower Elementary teacher here for thirteen years before completing my MLIS from USC and becoming a librarian. I began my career in education as an elementary Spanish teacher. Later I taught traditional second grade before completing my Montessori certification and becoming a Montessori teacher. A few years ago I made the switch to librarian and absolutely love being able share my love of reading and books with all of the students at Brockman!
I have a teenage daughter who attended Brockman, as well as the Montessori middle school program. I have an amazing fiance, who also has two children. We recently adopted a German Shepherd dog, Nelly. In my free time, I like to watch movies, go to restaurants, go to the gym, train my dog, and of course, read!
