About Mrs. Brock

 
 
I was born in Phoenix and raised in the small agricultural town of Yuma, Arizona.  Nearly everyone in my town was in 4-H, so naturally I raised and showed pigs and received numerous awards for them.  I loved each and every one so much, that I would cry every time the season ended and I had to say good-bye to them.
I also was a majorette in my high school marching band. 
 
I received my B.A. in Liberal Studies, and my Teaching Credential, from Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego.  I loved Point Loma (and the ocean; I still return every summer!!!) so much that I also earned my M.A. in Counseling from there!  I taught school in San Diego before returning to Yuma, Arizona.   While in Arizona I taught elementary school, and then joined Cibola High School's Counseling staff as a School Counselor. I loved helping students discover and pursue their goals and dreams, and I loved developing relationships with students. 
 
I then married my husband (I met him on an airplane...ask me the story sometime!), and in 1991, we transferred to Colorado for his job.  I have lived here since that time.  We have two children, a girl and a boy.  My husband and I homeschooled our son and daughter, and during their high school years, I taught part-time at their high school. My son recently graduated from college and my daughter is attending law school.  I came to Collegiate in August 2012 as a 5th grade teacher, switching to the K-12 School Counselor position halfway through that year.  I am a member of the American School Counselor Association, The Colorado Council on High School/College Relations, The National Association for College Admission Counseling, and the Colorado School Counselor Association.
 
I'm excited to be once again doing what I love most (besides teaching, of course), and where my passion lies: which is to be involved in students' lives, helping them along their school journey, encouraging, guiding, and advising them.
