Meet the Teacher



My name is David Bland.  I have been the Social Studies teacher for Summit Ridge Academy for the LSR7 School District since 2016.

I attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City where I received dual bachelor degrees in both Secondary Education and History.  In addition, I have a masters degree in Educational Administration.  For the last twelve years I was the lead teacher for the Raytown School District for long term suspension.

During my free time I enjoy the outdoors and sports.  Baseball and football are my favorite sports and I am a huge fan of the Royals, Chiefs and the MU Tigers!
