Ms. Payton Blankenship

I'm Payton Blankenship and this is my third year teaching at Maiden High School. I graduated from South Iredell High School, in Statesville, North Carolina. I traveled west for college, to attend Carson-Newman University, near Knoxville, Tennessee. There, I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Biology with Secondary Teacher Licensure. My favorite aspect of biology is that we can always learn more and I hope to instill that curiosity in my students. 

For Spring 2019:

My classes are using Canvas to access vocabulary, ntoes and supplemental materials, such as videos and study games. I look forward to an excellent semester and school year!
