After earning his M.A. in Humanities from CSUN, Brock went on to pursue his doctorate in K-12 Leadership at USC’s Rossier School of Education. For his dissertation, Brock conducted a multiple case study on learning environments in urban public high school classrooms. He completed his Ed.D in the summer of 2014.
Although Brock temporarily stepped away from the classroom to work as a member of the Los Angeles Education Partnership’s (LAEP) leadership team, he eventually returned to teaching and instructional coaching. In the Spring of 2017, Brock joined the Magnet’s staff as an instructional coach and AP English Literature teacher. This year, he joins the 12th grade team, where he will teach Social Institutions and Digital Humanities.
Throughout his teaching career, Brock has written about education issues for The Washington Post and The Huffington Post
Brock enjoys horror movies, hiking, and rooting for his hapless L.A. Clippers. He and his wife, Katie, live with their two dogs, Creature and Sophie, and they are expecting their first human baby any day now.
