Hello, my name is Tina Markham and I am Apollo's counselor. I grew up in western Kansas on a farm. I graduated from Ft. Hays State University with a degree in elementary education. My master's degree in counseling is from WSU. I was an elementary teacher for 9 years and a school counselor for the past 16 years.
I was married to the "love of my life", John for 33 years. He was a teacher and coach in the Goddard School district for 25 years. Sadly on October 22, 2009 John died from a liver disease. We have two great kids. They both attended and graduated from Goddard. Our oldest, Ashley is married to Nick Blasi. She is an optometrist in Wichita and Nick works at Marine World. On July 20, 2013 my first granddaughter was born. Her name is Jaylah Cerise Blasi. Maely Ann Blasi was born June 17, 2015. Kyle, our son, is married to Britney. They live in Lawrence. Kyle is the General Manager of the KU Tennis Center and Britney is a speech pathologist. On February 16, 2012, I became a Grandma:-) My grandson's name is Wyatt John Markham. On February 7, 2014 Miles Fisher Markham another grandson joined our family. I love being a Grandma!!
I love my job at Apollo! The favorite part of my job is spending time with the awesome students at Apollo and working with the wonderful Apollo staff.
