Mrs. Janice M Blevins
I was born and raised in Bridgeport and attended Bridgeport public schools from kindergarten through high school. I attended the University of Connecticut where I prepared to be a high school English teacher. I lived in the South for several years, teaching in both North Carolina and Kentucky. After several years, I returned to Connecticut in order to be closer to my family. I started teaching in Bridgeport in 1990 at Central High School, but then transferred to Bassick High School where I have been an English teacher ever since. I also serve my school by being the coordinator of Bassick's English Department. I consider Bassick to be my home, and am honored to teach English to grade twelve students. This year, I will also teach Journalism. I am already looking forward to a wonderful 2020-2021 school year!
