My name is Blake Pi, and I am so excited to be teaching in the Structured Learning Classroom at Chandler Elementary.
I was born in California and moved to the Allen area when I was 4 years old. I attended Allen schools K-12 and am so blessed to be teaching in Allen as well. GO EAGLES! My wife, Tiffany, also works in Allen ISD as a Diagnostician at Rountree Elementary. We have been happily married for 8 years. We currently reside in McKinney, TX. Although we do not have any children yet, we have 3 very spoiled cats (Faith, Waylon, and Patty), 1 dog (Stella), and 1 rabbit (Lilly). Most of our animals are rescues, as Tiffany and I have a huge passion for this. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my animals, traveling, and spending time with family.
I received my bachelors degree in special education from the University of North Texas. This is my 9th year as a Special Education Teacher and my 6th year in Allen ISD.
I really have a passion for teaching students with special needs and am always learning new ways for them to reach their full potential. I am so excited to start the year and working with you and your child. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.

Hi! My name is Nicole Cersley and I am one of the Teaching Assistants in the Structured Learning Class here at Chandler Elementary. I started in this class in the middle of last year so this will be my first full year to really enjoy and learn my students. I was born and raised in McKinney, TX and recently moved here to Allen, TX about 2 years ago. My life basically revolves around my son and college life. I am a mother to a child with Autism myself so I am always learning and finding new ways not only for my family at home, but for my students as well. I am currently in college at the Collin County Community College but will soon be transferring to UNT to finish the rest of my Master’s degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology. My main goal is to stay here at chandler my entire college career and after graduation; become the new Speech Pathologist here on campus. I am looking forward to this upcoming year and to see all of our wonderful students who will be joining us in our class.
