“Without even knowing this job [existed], I’ve been preparing for it for so long,” said Blake. “This gives me an opportunity to work with more people, especially teachers. They’re on the front lines with students, and they need the support.  

Blake joins CSSS following her role as assistant principal of Fort Bend Independent School District’s Willowridge High School. Her previous roles in education also include director of student-athlete development for the University of Houston and dean of students for Yes Prep Northside Secondary School.
