"I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well."
- Alexander the Great

Hello. My name is Michael Blouse and I grew up in the rural South Central Pennsylvania borough of Felton (pop. 415). I graduated from Red Lion High School in 1993 and Shippensburg University in 1997. I played baseball and took part in various extracurricular activities throughout high school and college.

In my first prome2fessional life, I was a sports writer at The Express-Times in Easton, Pa., for 12 years. It was a wonderful job, especially for someone who is passionate about sports, writing and people. I met many great people, covered a lot of sporting events in and around the Lehigh Valley, and made countless memories. But at some point I realized that I wanted an exciting new challenge. Throughout my career in the communications field, I made numerous trips to area elementary and middle schools to speak about my job and writing/reporting skills. It was during those visits that I realized what I wanted for my second career.

While it was anything but an easy choice, I decided in the summer of 2010 to again become a full-time student and enrolled in the elementary education program here at Moravian College.
Less than a year later, I'm on track to earn my teaching certification in December 2011.

My hobbies include playing and watching sports, spending time with family and friends, and working part-time as a freelance sports writer for the Morning Call of Allentown, Pa. I also enjoy reading a good book and taking walks.

Thanks for visiting my website.
