Since 2006, Shelby Brock has taught interior design at Sam Houston State University. She is a Registered Interior Designer (RID) with the Texas Board of Architectural Examiners and is also a Registered Accessibility Specialist (RAS) with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. She has over 15 years of private practice experience in both commercial and residential design, construction, and project management. Some of her completed projects include the H.E.A.R.T.S. Veterans Museum, the Walker County Courthouse renovation, Faith Lutheran Church and school addition, all constructed in Huntsville; as well as the Grand Station Entertainment Center, constructed in College Station, Texas. Her primary teaching interests are computer-aided drafting, junior studio, and codes, although she has taught most of the courses in the interior design curriculum. Mrs. Brock's main goal in the classroom is to bring real world scenarios to students. This knowledge from a firsthand perspective enables students to have a greater understanding of what a professional interior designer encounters daily.
