Hello I'm Danny Blalock!  I teach Automotive Technology class and a Dual Credit ACC Automotive course right here at TSD.  This will be my 4th year teaching, and yes, I am a proud TSD alumni as I graduated in 2001.


I received an AAS degree in Automotive Technology at ACC – Austin Community College. What's more, I earned several current ASE (automotive service excellence) certificates. I've been running my own auto repair shop, aka Silent Automotive, based in Austin, TX for 12 years until 2019 when I decided to close the shop on good terms before landing here at TSD to give back to my community.  Not only that, but I still do semi auto repairs in my home garage on my summer break and some weekends.


My wife and I have three CODA kids, along with 2 dogs - one is Lab/Doberman mixed and one is Mastiff mixed, and one black cat. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, doing outdoor activities, fixing anything with my hands, walking with dogs on trails, renovating home projects, car projects, car races endurance @ champcar.org , and so much more!  I'm also a die-hard fan of the Houston Texans, Rockets, Astros AND Longhorns!


Looking forward to working with your kids in the Automotive Technology program, sharing my relevant experiences in the real world, and growing their skills.
