Welcome to 8th grade English Language Arts. My name is Roma Blinn, and I am a native of Colorado, but have lived in Idaho since 1997. My educational background is in sociology, education, and organizational leadership, with particular areas of interest in art history, women's history, philosophy, and social change. My hobbies include sketching, playing with my two dogs, reading, writing poetry, painting, travel, and relaxing to jazz music. I am fascinated by the mysteries of the universe and the beauty of the cosmos. As a curious soul, I continue learning about the universe on a daily basis. My interests in philosophy, art, history, animals (especially wolves and elephants), nature, space, peace-making, travel, and poetry help me appreciate the complexity of the life experience. I'm grateful for this teaching opportunity at Lake Hazel Middle School and hope to both teach my students and learn from them as well on our journey together.
