Assistant Principal

Dear Blanchard Community,


I am thrilled to be joining the leadership team at Blanchard! I enter the Assistant Principal role after six years as a classroom teacher. Teaching 1st and 5th grades solidified my belief that learning is an inherently collaborative act. Supportive learning environments empower children to take risks, persevere through challenges, and engage compassionately with the world around them. I look forward to partnering with you to strengthen and affirm the values of our learning community.


I have been spending much of this summer preparing for the upcoming year of teaching and learning at Blanchard. I have also been hiking, exploring, and reading in Cape Cod, Western Mass, Vermont, and California. Just like the title character in Leo Lionni’s beloved book Frederick, I believe in using the summer to soak up warm memories!


I look forward to getting to know you and your families. Please let me know how I can best support you.


Warmly,

Leigh Whiting-Jones
