For those that do not know him. Mr. Hallock is a Midland graduate, part of the first graduating class in 1998. He also attended Midland during his elementary years. After graduating from Midland Academy, Mr. Hallock moved to Lincoln, Nebraska where he received a degree in elementary education from Union College. After that, he worked as a substitute teacher for the Lincoln Public Schools for a year and a half, and has now been at Midland for seven and a half years. Mr. Hallock say, "I have really enjoyed teaching the 7th and 8th grade students here at Midland!"

You'd be surprised to know that...

Mr. Hallock shook Joe Montana's (4-time Super Bowl Champ) hand at the Target down the road from Midland.


When he is not teaching, Mr. Hallock enjoys spending time with his family and friends. He got married to his beautiful wife, Tara, in 2014. They have a little girl named Kayla. She will turn 10 years old in February. Mr. Hallock is also now a proud step-dad to his beautiful step-daughter, Aaliyah. She will be turning 11 in November. He and Tara added another baby girl, Elizabeth, to their family in the spring of 2016. She was born on May 12th. So as you can see, he has a lot of women in his life! Mr. Hallock is passionate about being a good husband, father, and spiritual role model for them.;
