My name is Brian Cochran, and I am from Lakewood, Colorado. I earned my undergraduate degree, a B.A. in English with a minor in Secondary Education, from Metropolitan State University of Denver. I earned my post-graduate degree, an M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in English, from the University of Nebraska at Kearney.

I began my undergraduate studies as a Business major but I found myself disliking the majority of my courses; however, I enjoyed nearly every session of my English courses, so I became an English major. I also decided to undertake a Secondary Education minor and discovered that I enjoyed interacting with high school students and helping them discover their potential and voice.

I joined DMLK in the first of the new high school in 2006 and have thoroughly enjoyed the last eleven years in these halls. My greatest joy comes from hearing from former students talk about my courses helping them in college, and I want to make sure that our current and future students are prepared for the rigors presented on their college or university campus.
