Welcome to My Classroom!

My name is Michael Blum and I am incredibly excited to be teaching at KIS this year! This will be my first year as a teacher but this will be my third year in the AU classroom here at KIS. I've spent the last two years as a teacher assistant. I love working with these kiddos and cannot wait to implement new ideas and methods in this classroom! If you need anything, feel free to contact me by email or by school phone at (704) 932-4161 ext 42902 or by e-mail at michael.blum@kcs.k12.nc.us!

College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:

Ohio University-Athens 
Scripps School of Communication 
B.S. in Communication Studies 2010

I am also currently enrolled at UNC-Charlotte obtaining my

Educational Philosophy/Vision:

Every child learns at a different pace and with a different style; I believe that each student is unique and is not only capable of learning but also capable of succeeding.

What We are Studying:

In our classroom we will be studying all common core subjects as well as working on different social and life skills. There will be various styles of instruction, such as whole class instruction, small group instruction, and independent work as well. 

Things parents/guardians can do to help:

  • Daily information sheets will be sent home, along with other possible important information!
  • Please read with your children 20 minutes per night!
  • Working together is the best way for a child to succeed so please share any important information with us! And we will likewise communicate about their day to you! Please let me know if you ever have any questions, comments, concerns!
