Mr. Brock's Social Studies Page

From a Sam Houston State University Bearkat, to a Moody Bearcat, no matter how you spell it, I am excited to be starting my first year at Moody Middle School teaching 5th and 8th grade social studies. I spent the previous nine years teaching social studies and English in Waco. I'm from Lorena, but when Lorena was small and in the same district as Moody in the 1980's - so don't hold that against me.  I have a background in journalism, marketing, and desktop design prior to entering education in 2014. My goal is to bring social studies to life and draw a direct connection to how it relates to all situations in modern times. I also have a very "open door" policy - meaning I welcome communication from both parents and students.
My wife Tracy and I just celebrated 30 years of marriage and getting our two sons Samuel and Owen through college. Tracy is a career educator with her doctorate and serves an Instructional Specialist for Waco ISD. Sam is a UNT grad, working in Waco and a talented musician. Owen is also an SHSU grad who is starting his first year of teaching in Huntsville. Personally, I love music, sports, trivia of any type, playing disc golf, and spending time in the mountains. I look forward to this upcoming year.
