Kimberly Morrow Brock

Teacher Learner and Executive Director

Opening her own school has been a lifelong dream of Kimberly. Since 1996 while she was working on her Master's Degree in Education she has had aspirations of creating a school for students whose academic, cultural, and social-emotional needs are met.

Kimberly is an advocate, author, and educational leader with an innovative approach to serving the challenges of struggling learners with unique gifts and talents. She attended Morris Brown College and Harvard Graduate School of Education where she earned her B.A. in History and M.Ed. in Teaching and Curriculum respectively. In addition,


Kimberly holds a valid CA Single Subject teaching credential as well as a valid administrative services credential.

Throughout her 25 year career in education, she is most proud of her work with parents and students, specifically those students who struggle with reading, writing, and math. Kimberly understands the best way to help students who are struggling is to use their interests as a catalyst. As a result, she creates personalized lessons for each of her students designed to get them interested in sharpening their skills.


Inspired by the likes of Mary McCleod Bethune, Marva Collins, and Big Bethel A.M.E. Church, the founders of Morris Brown College in Atlanta, Kimberly took a leap of faith and founded Doris L. Morrow Academy. The primary objective of the school is to provide a quality education that meets the needs of families endeavoring to homeschool their children.

Kimberly enjoys spending time with friends, family, and writing. She is the author of the book, 8 Pearls of Wisdom: A Parenting Guide; a writer and contributor of several articles including, L.A. Parent.com, I'm Loving Me Project.com, Parents.com, et. al.

Whatever your reason for choosing to homeschool your children, Doris L. Morrow Academy is here to assist you and your child in attaining your goals in meaningful, authentic, and creative ways.
