Brock Baxter currently teaches physics, robotics, an algebra 1 lab, and consumer math at Osage City High School in Osage City, Kansas. Before Osage City he taught for 5 years at Marais des Cygnes Valley High School in Melvern, Kansas. He has been an assistant football and track coach most of the years he has been teaching. He is approaching his 7th year of teaching, but before he realized he wanted to teach he took on another role. He earned an undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering from Kansas State University in 2007, followed by a 2.5 year stint in the construction management field. Realizing he desired something different professionally, he went back to KSU. With the help of the National Science Foundation Robert Noyce Scholarship Program he became a science teacher, with an emphasis on physics, and eventually earned his master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2017.
