Ms. Janice M. Bledsoe

Born in St. Louis, MO, I moved with my family to the San Francisco Bay Area while in elementary school, and lived in the East Bay for 25 years.   During that time, I earned both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Comparative Literature from the University of California at Berkeley, with an emphasis in German language and literature.  I also studied in Germany as an exchange student for several years, first in the northern German university town of Goettingen, and later in Tuebingen, a university town near Stuttgart in southwestern Germany.   I love the German language and culture, and look forward to sharing it with the students at Midland Valley High School!

I have a daughter and son, and enjoy traveling, reading, bicycling, and art.  I collect hand-decorated, real eggs from all over the world and schoolgirl silkworks created in the early 19th Century.
