Mrs. Brock is a 1982 alumnus of Whitmire High School. She spent the first seven years of her teaching career at Fairfield Central High School in Winnsboro, SC before coming home to Whitmire in 1995. Her main purpose in coming home was to give back to the community and school that had given so much to her.  Since becoming part of the Newberry County education family, Mrs. Brock has become certified in reading and GT.



Mrs. Brock grew up in Whitmire and has lived here all her life.  She is married to Jimmy Brock, and they have three children and two grandchildren. She attends Whitmire First Baptist Church, where she enjoys writing for and editing the church newsletter.  She also enjoys the mission work that her church does, especially for the community. 

Mrs. Brock is the WHS Senior Class Sponsor and WHS Senior Beta Club Co-sponsor.  She is a member of the Newberry County Reading Council, summer reading committee, plagiarism prevention committee, and the curriculum development committee. In 2010, her fellow teachers selected her as Whitmire Community School’s Distinguished Reading Teacher of the Year, and later she went on to be named Newberry County’s Distinguished Reading Teacher of the Year. In addition, she was Whitmire High School's Teacher of the Year in 2000 and again in 2012.
