Steven G. Blackstock
I was born in Hampton, Virginia, and lived in Poquoson, Virginia, until attending college. In 1987 I married Suzanne, who now teaches social studies at First Flight Middle School. My daughter Katie Blanchard is a teacher; my son John is a professional bass player, and my daughter Mary Alice is a journalism major at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
I earned a Bachelor of Music Education from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia, a Master of Liturgical Music from The Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. and a Master of Educational Leadership from East Carolina University. My educational career included 16 years in music education, 7 years teaching secondary mathematics, and 7 years in school administration. I was an administrative intern at Manteo Elementary School from 2010-2011, undertook the responsibilities of an assistant principal at First Flight High School from 2011-2012, was principal at Jarvisburg Elementary School in Currituck from 2012-2015 and have been proud to serve as principal of Manteo Elementary since 2015.
