     Blalock Dara Blalock
     Hi Mariners!  My name is Dara Blalock and I’m so excited to be a part of the Matt family this coming school year. This will be my 16th year teaching. I received my associate’s degree from Young Harris College and my bachelor and master’s degrees in early childhood education from the University of North Georgia. This will be my 16th year teaching. (Times flies when you love what you do!). I love watching young minds grow!
    My husband and I, along with our golden retriever, live in Forsyth County. I enjoy being outdoors, kayaking, fishing, and spending time with family and friends. I can’t wait to meet all of you!
