Sarah Brock, Founder & CEO
Sarah began her career as a middle school teacher at KIPP Liberation College Prep, located in Third Ward, Houston. The experience ignited a passion for education and a belief that every child can achieve at the highest levels, no matter the color of their skin, the digits in their zip code, or the dollars in their family’s bank account.
After surviving the hormone-riddled hallways of middle school, Sarah transitioned to the world of talent management. She spent another eight years at KIPP Houston Public Schools leading teacher recruitment, talent development, and a new teacher residency program.
In 2018 she joined the founding staff of Good Reason Houston, a local nonprofit dedicated to ensuring every child has access to an excellent education. As the Director of Communications, Sarah supported the organization through its start-up phase. She now consults with school districts and education nonprofits around talent strategies, in addition to leading learning groups around race and issues of racial equity. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from Auburn University.
Sarah founded Houston Learning Pods after seeing an incredible need for an innovative solution to our most pressing education problem during this pandemic. With a background in teacher recruitment and training, she’s uniquely positioned to find and bring excellent pod leaders to Houston families. When not leading at Houston Learning Pods, she dreams of a second career as a broadway star and pretends to enjoy running.
