Mr. Brock Martin
Hello Nolan Ryan Junior High! My name is Brock Martin, and I will be teaching Computer Science and Digital Animation!
I have a bachelor’s degree in Cinematic Arts from HBU and a master's degree in Digital Media from UHCL. During my time working on these, I was fortunate enough to intern at 2 locations. First, I interned with Sagemont Church’s production team as a camera operator and technology assistant. Then during my master’s degree, I interned under Tietronix as an Unreal Engine 4 simulation scripter. To pay for these degrees I spent the last 3 years working part-time with Apex Fire Services as a technology assistant and as a part-time teacher with Martin Lakes Christian Academy. At this academy, I taught World History, American History, Texas History, 3D Modelling, 3D Animation, Computer Literacy, and Creative Writing. Both degrees, along with all the skills that came with them, were obtained for one purpose: to wrangle the potential of the worlds of computer science and digital art for educational use. I will be teaching students how these two realms of learning tie into all the other subjects they have in school so that they have a chance to get excited about learning on every level. I will also be giving them a tool belt of skills and knowledge regarding the use of digital technology.
I am the eldest of 8 children. I am a sucker for just about anything superhero or fantasy related. I used to have a massive LEGO collection, but I donated them to my 3 little brothers once they were old enough to enjoy them, as I still do. I am a seasoned swimmer, and I was on the Wahoos swim team for 3 years. I also got a license to scuba dive and hope to one day re-enter that world.
