In addition to being a classroom teacher, Blackman has served Tustin Unified as a teacher on special assignment for science and Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID), overseeing the District inquiry-based science program and supporting the growth of Tustin’s AVID program.
For the past three years, Blackman has served as principal of Estock as the school celebrated its 50thanniversary. Blackman is a fellow in the Costen Principal’s Technology Network and Los Angeles/Orange County School Leader’s Network. This year, Blackman was selected as TUSD’s Elementary Principal of the Year and will represent the District at the Orange County Administrators of the Year program, sponsored by the Association of California School Administrators, Region 17.
Blackman has a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of San Diego, a master’s degree in teaching from the University of California, Irvine, and a master’s degree in educational administration from Concordia University. She holds a strong belief that children learn best when provided inquiry-based learning with an emphasis on authentic reading, writing, problem solving and project-based learning.
“I plan to create a model STEAM Magnet school at Heritage Elementary by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff and community partners,” Blackman said. “Providing meaningful and engaging learning experiences will be our top priority, while ensuring a safe and nurturing environment where students are encouraged to grow and create.”
