Justin Blomquist has been teaching in the field of Special Education/Behavior for 6 years. Mr. Blomquist has a B.A. in Anthropology from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). Prior to entering education, Mr. Blomquist worked for 2 years as a Research Scientist Assistant/Field Archaeologist for UTSA’s Center for Archaeological Research. Seeking to help others, Mr. Blomquist obtained his teaching certification and entered the field of education.
Mr. Blomquist started his teaching career at Fair Oaks Ranch Elementary as a one-on-one teaching assistant in a behavior classroom. After one year at Fair Oaks, Mr. Blomquist was hired as a Special Education Teacher at Curington Elementary. Mr. Blomquist fell in love with the Boerne community and their support for education so when the time came to decide where to buy a house and set down roots, it was only going to be a home in Boerne ISD. At Curington Elementary he has served in many roles including; special education department chair, BOA curriculum instructor, inclusion support staff, classroom co-teacher, case manager, behavior support specialist, and social skills teacher. Using his strong background knowledge of culture, linguistics, and biological anthropology, Mr. Blomquist brings a unique perspective to his work with special education students in Boerne ISD.
Originally from Houston, Mr. Blomquist grew up in Canyon Lake and attended Smithson Valley High School where he met his wife. Mr. Blomquist’s wife is also a teacher in Boerne ISD and his daughter attends BISD schools. He and his family have lived in Boerne for the past 7 years. When he is not teaching he enjoys working in the yard, woodworking, listening to music, playing the drums, helping his daughter improve her softball skills, and making amazing barbecue ribs. Mr. Blomquist serves on the Boerne ISD Strategic 50 committee and hopes to strengthen the legacy that Boerne ISD has set forth thus far.
