Mr.Brock is probably one of the nicest teachers in the school. Genuinely, it's obvious he cares for you, and he wants you to succeed. Generally, there's a trend among people who hate/like Mr.Brock. Those who like him are normally the ones who actually try; those who don't are normally those who complain about the class every time you bring it up. Just know this, he's easily the most genuine teacher you'll have your entire first year of high school, and choosing to not cooperate with him generally leads to his job and your learning becoming harder, so the best thing to do is actually do your best, which is all he asks of you.
