This coming school year, 2018-2019, marks Robert's 23nd year of teaching. Robert is excited to get to spend another year at Springfield High School and Junior High as the 7th grade Computer Technology and 8th – 12th grade Robotics teacher. Prior to teaching at the junior high and high school level, he taught 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades. Most of these years he had a self-contained classroom where he taught all of the subjects. In the fall of 2008, Robert switched to math only. In 2007-2008, he also spent two semesters teaching technology at the University of Akron. Teaching at so many age ranges allows Robert to appropriately integrate technology at many levels. Robert received his Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Malone College in 1996. A few years later he went on to get a Master of Arts in Education concentrating on instructional technology from the University of Akron in 2002. He facilitates and leads a computer science camp in Springfield Local Schools. He also facilitates and lead a other computer science camps to the children of the Summit, Stark, and Portage Counties in Northeast Ohio. Robert also speaks and leads professional development in Springfield Local Schools as well as around Northeast Ohio. He has presented at International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), Ohio Educational Technology Conference (OETC), NEOTech Conference, the APS3T Conference and the Stark Mini Maker Faire.
