Krystle Blakefield is an Associate Advocate with Palm Beach Education Solutions. She has extensive knowledge in education, public service, and exceptional student education (ESE) services. With over 14 years of experience, she has a passion for helping parents ensure their voices are heard while enabling their children to receive the support they need. She attended the University of Maryland in Baltimore County earning a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and American Studies, before obtaining her Master’s of Science in Curriculum, Instruction, and Administration from McDaniel College. Before becoming an Associate Advocate, Ms. Blakefield held several roles including classroom and resource teacher, ESE service provider, and ESE contact.

Ms. Blakefield has a deep understanding of ESE law and compliance, which she uses to help families identify their options within the special education system. She’s well-versed in the complexities of Section 504 documents and recognizes the importance of preparing for CSE and IEP meetings. This allows her to work closely with parents and identify the appropriate programs to meet their children’s needs.

 

Ms. Blakefield spends the majority of her time working one-on-one with parents to review related documents, attend school meetings, provide guidance and advice, and advocate on their behalf to the district. She holds a longstanding passion for special education, which she credits to her younger brother. Growing up, she experienced first-hand the challenges many school districts imposed on families with a child who is Intellectually Disabled. Because of this, she knew at an early age she wanted to pursue special education and advocate for families. Today, Ms. Blakefield resides in Tequesta, Florida with her husband, Bill, and their two children, Elliott and William. In her free time, she enjoys staying active and spending quality time with friends and family.
