Welcome, I hope you are having a fantastic summer, and spending time relaxing and enjoying the warm weather! I want to be the first to welcome you to 3rd grade and to my class. This will be an exciting year of learning, getting reacquainted with old friends and making new friends, I can’t wait to get to know YOU!


This is my eleventh year teaching at Blue Heron Elementary, and I love our vibrant and diverse community. I taught 1st grade my first 5 years at Blue Heron, and I will begin my 6th year in 3rd grade this fall. 3rd grade is a special year with amazing learning and personal, social and academic growth!


I am married and I have 2 wonderful children, Megan (24) and Jackson (21.) Oh, how time flies! My son is studying Economics and Global Sustainability at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, and my daughter is earning a graduate degree in Speech Pathology at University of Wisconsin, Madison. I love food, music, flower gardening, and spending time in the mountains. I enjoy hiking and camping in the summer and snow skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.

Hello Blue Heron Families!

My name is Laura Blakey, and I am excited to be part of the third-grade team this year! My goal as a teacher is to encourage students to find their sense of curiosity while developing their critical thinking and problem-solving skills. I want to connect with and support the whole child by meeting each student where they are in their academic journey and helping them become the best versions of themselves. I have a bachelor’s degree in Business Management from the University of the Pacific and a master's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Northern Colorado.

I grew up in Southern California where I was a competitive swimmer. I swam collegiately at UOP and then moved to San Francisco where I met my husband and had my first two children. A desire for a better quality of life led my family to Colorado in 2014 and we haven’t looked back. We welcomed twins in 2016 and our family of 6 (plus two dogs and a bearded dragon) is complete! 

These days you will most often find me on the sidelines of a soccer, lacrosse, track, or water polo practice, game, or tournament. As a family, we love to cheer on the 49ers in the fall and ski during the winter.  

I believe that for students to learn and grow academically, socially, and emotionally the classroom must be a safe space where every student feels they belong and are valued. I am looking forward to meeting and building a relationship with each student! 

Mrs. Blakey 

Hello! My name is Megan Burke and I am very excited to join Blue Heron Elementary’s 3rd grade team.  I absolutely love being an elementary school teacher.  My experience over the last several years includes teaching 4th and 5th grades, as well as a couple of years as a literacy and math Intervention Specialist.  Understanding each student individually is at the heart of all that I do in the classroom.  Expect to see my “inner interventionist” this year as I love to find the best way for each student to grow.
My family and I have been Grant Ranch residents for many years, and I couldn’t be happier to serve in the community where I live.  I have been married to my best friend for over twenty years and we have two amazing daughters, a high school junior and a freshman at CU Boulder.  Both girls keep us busy with their athletic events and activities.  When I find some free time, you might see me walking my chihuahua or jogging around the neighborhood.
