Born and raised alongside her younger sister in Ypsilanti, Michigan, Ms. Blake attended Ypsilanti High School where my favorite classes were the humanities and calculus. After graduating in 2008, she followed her high school interests at Kalamazoo College and declared a major in Math.
During the fall semester of her junior year at K College, she had the privilege of studying abroad in Strasbourg, France. Following her 2012 graduation, she immediately moved to Chicago and received my teaching degree one year later at National Louis University.
Whenever she is not teaching, Ms. Blake enjoys completing arts and crafts, like knitting and reading. During breaks she tries to go back to Michigan where her friends and family still reside.
