My name is Joel Blalock.  I am the principal of Irving Elementary.  This is my second year at Irving Elementary.  However, I have been employed with Cleburne ISD since 2000.  I was a Spanish Teacher and coach at Cleburne High School.  I became assistant principal at CHS in 2006.  I went to Gerard Elementary as an assistant principal in 2008.  I became principal of Gerard in 2012.  I was given the fantastic opportunity to come to Irving Elementary in 2014.  I love it here.  Go Tigers!!!  
I am a proud CHS alum, class of '92.  Go Jackets!!!!  I attended Texas Christian University, class of '96.  Go Frogs!!!!  I obtained my Master's Degree from Tarleton State University.  Go Texans!!!!  
My wife, Angie and I married in 1999 in Midland, Texas.  We have three wonderful children, Bryson, Braegan, and Katie Beth.  They all attend Cleburne schools.  
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about me!
