My name is Daryl Biallas and this is my 15th year of teaching in the Clarkston Community Schools. I grew up in Canton and graduated from Eastern Michigan University in 1997 with a B.A. in Secondary Education with a double major in Spanish and Mathematics. I also have a M.A. in Spanish from Eastern Michigan University (2004).
After graduating in '97, I moved to the area and spent two years at Clarkston Middle School (now Clarkston Junior High) where I taught 6th grade World Language as well as 7th and 8th grade Spanish. I am currently in my 13th year at Clarkston High School where I have taught Spanish 1-5. This year I am teaching Spanish III, V, and IB Spanish. I also serve as the Subject Area Coordinator for World Languages in the district.
Besides teaching Spanish, my other passions include travel (see the map below to see where I've been and where I'm going), golf (though I'm not very good), water-skiing, camping, and of course...SPEAKING SPANISH!
