Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ginger Blankenship, Principal of Kimball Elementary. I was born in Welch, WV. I received my education from Panther Elementary, Iaeger Intermediate, and Iaeger High School. Therefore, following my college years, I chose to put my Elementary Education Degree to work in the county that made me who I am today. Therefore, I have been teaching in McDowell County since Fall 1992. I made the decision at the age of eight to be a principal. As a result of this decision, I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Bluefield State College and then went on to earn my Master's Degree in Deaf Education. Following this, I went on to earn a Master's in Leadership Studies. I have been blessed with two wonderful children from my marriage who continually make me proud to be their mother. I am very excited to be a part of Kimball Elementary and look forward to working with staff, students, and families to create a safe educational environment.
