My name is Brock Evans and I have been teaching for 20 years and 18 of those years have been with the Mount Vernon City Schools system. Prior to Mount Vernon City Schools I taught high school multiple handicap and middle school health/physical education in Marion, Ohio. I graduated from Mount Vernon Nazarene College in 1999 with a bachelor's degree in Physical Education and Health with a minor in sports medicine.
I am very passionate about my job and working with youth. I was a member of the Ohio Department of Education Physical Education Standard Writing Committee which successfully wrote the first ever physical education standards for our state. Immediately following that committee work I was selected to be a team member to develop and write the assessments for the standards previously written. These assessments are currently found on each school report card published by the Ohio Department of Education. All of the hard work has changed the face of physical education today.
I truly believe that it takes a village to raise a child and it is not uncommon to find me involved in community partnerships with United Way of Knox County, Knox County Health Department, and the YMCA as well as many other fitness and youth organizations. As of 2019 I became a Crossfit L1 coach currently coaching at Crossfit 1808 located in Mount Vernon. Besides working with these organizations I find great joy in coaching our youth. I currently run all youth wrestling programs for Mount Vernon Wrestling including the Little Stingers and Killer Bees teams. I also coached high school soccer for 13 years at Mount Vernon High School.
Everyday presents itself for me to use my blessings and do my best to teach each child about themselves and how to become a better individual as a whole. The beauty is I have the opportunity everyday being a teacher.
I currently reside in Mount Vernon with my beautiful wife Stephanie and our two dachshunds, Tressel and Cole.
