Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Janice M. Bledsoe

Born in St. Louis, MO, I later moved with my family to the San Francisco Bay Area.   There, at the University of California at Berkeley, I earned a B.A. in Comparative Literature, with a major emphasis on German and a minor emphasis on Spanish.  I was very fortunate to be able to spend my undergraduate junior year abroad in Goettingen, Germany, a lovely university town in central Germany.  I then returned to Berkeley and completed my M.A. in Comparative Literature, focusing this time on the German and English languages and literatures.  After completing my master's degree, I once again returned to Germany, where I lived in Tuebingen, a very old and beautiful university town on the Neckar River in southwestern Germany.  

I now live in Augusta, GA and have two grown children, one who is completing a post-doc in Ecology in Regina, Canada, and the other who is a rising sophomore at Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania.  In my spare time I enjoy reading, traveling, visiting with friends, baking, and bike-riding. 

I am excited to be joining the Millbrook Elementary family and look forward to sharing the wonderful German language and culture with the students here!
