• About Mr. Blake 

     Hi! I'm the Exceptional Children (EC) Resource Teacher and Case Manager at Candor Elementary. I serve students across Grades K-5 providing extra support in Reading and Math. This is my 16th year with Montgomery County Schools and my fourth current year at Candor Elementary. I worked here previously from August 2013 to June 2018.  I have a daughter in the fourth grade here at Candor Elementary and my wife is a kindergarten teacher at Mount Gilead Elementary on the west side of Montgomery County. I have a bachelor's degree in history  from UNC-Asheville and a master's degree in Public History/Museum Studies from Appalachian State University. I studied Exceptional Chidren's Education at UNC-Charlotte and Pfeiffer University. I am certified in General Exceptional Children K-12 and Severe/Profound Exceptional Children K-12. I believe that all children are capable of doing whatever they put their mind to regardless of disability, race, economic background, etc. and seek everyday to help my students and others at Candor Elementary to do their best and be successful both in academics and in life. 

    If you wish to contact me, please call Candor Elementary at 910-974-4582 or email me at Chris.Blake@montgomery.k12.nc.us. I look forward to speaking with you.
