Thank you for visiting Odenville Intermediate School. I am Christy Blankenship and I have the honor of serving the students here at OIS. I grew up in Odenville and graduated from St. Clair County High School. I have a Bachelor's degree, a Master's degree, and an EdS in early childhood and elementary education from the University of Alabama. Roll Tide! I started my teaching career as a 3rd grade teacher at Odenville Elementary School. Due to my husband's Air Force career, I also had the opportunity to teach for 11 years in Florida and in Tennessee. In 2015, my family came back home to St. Clair County where I taught 3rd grade and 4th grade at OIS. During this time, I went back to school at UAB and added Educational Leadership to my certificate. I served as the assistant principal here at Odenville Intermediate for 4 years before being chosen to be the principal in January of 2023. I thoroughly enjoy being a part of the Odenville community and the amazing staff at Odenville Intermediate School!
I am married to Rich Blankenship. We have 4 children - Dylan (24), Parker (16), Rayleigh (13), and Max (11).
