My name is David Blevins. I am married to Rebecca Blevins and have 3 children: Rory, RaeLynne, and Davin. I will be teaching 6th grade Social Studies. I have been teaching since 2013 and am very excited to be joining the Oneida Middle School staff. I graduated from Oneida High School in 1995 and continued to progress my education at Roane State Community College (Associate's Degree), Tennessee Wesleyan College (Bachelor's Degree), and The University of the Cumberlands (Master's Degree).
During this school year we will be studying the origins of civilizations and the progression of human development. We will also be learning many essential skills to become better historians. Skills such as reading timelines, map interpretations, and analysis of primary documents will be instrumental in our classroom activities. It is going to be an exciting year with many challenges. As we venture on this journey through ancient history, I look forward to all of my students gaining a greater understanding of history and it's importance.
I am also the the OMS Boys soccer coach. I have been a soccer coach with AYSO for nearly 10 years and Middle School Boys in previous years. I also played soccer during my years at Oneida High School. Soccer is a wonderful sport that incorporates valuable talents in endurance, strength, speed, and high-speed thinking. I am excited to be involved Oneida's Soccer program.
