    My name is Dale Blaess.  I was born and raised in Rhode Island.  I married a wonderful man 27 years ago.  We left RI to pursue a life in the US Army.  We have two wonderful children.  Michael is 24 and is in the US Air Force, and Ashley is 22 and is a personal trainer.  We were lucky to live in Washington, Georgia, and Hawaii.  I went to school at the University of Columbus in Georgia.   I received my bachelors in early childhood and elementary education at the University.  I taught for one year in Georgia before the Army brought us to Hawaii.  I taught in Hawaii for three years before the Army brought us back to RI.  I've been teaching in Newport for 12 years.   I received my master's degree in literacy a few years ago at Roger Williams University, and now I am also an adjunct professor there.  I have also published Brainquest for Birth through Kindergarten and the new Star Wars Workbooks for Preschool and Kindergarten.
