This will be Bob's 7th year teaching at EEC. He is our 3's lead teacher, PM mixed age lead teacher, and the Director of Community Outreach for our programs. He earned his BA in education from Southeastern Louisiana University and then went on to teach high school English with an emphasis on Literature in Nashville, TN. When his daughter was born, he transitioned into teaching part-time as a substitute teacher and being a stay-at-home dad. As a substitute, Bob spent a good deal of time in elementary school classrooms and gained experience with many different age groups. While studying and teaching English, Bob developed a deep intuition for language development and is excited to be using these skills at the preschool level. Interestingly enough, he found that he spent a great deal of time working with and teaching his high school students much needed social and communication skills as well as conflict resolution skills so he is thrilled to be working at the preschool level to help model, teach and instill these skills at an early age. In addition, with a background and passion in storytelling and music, Bob creates a unique, creative and musical dynamic in the classroom environment.
Bob’s daughter attended the EEC preschool and is now in elementary school. In his free time, he enjoys playing in a rock-n-roll band, camping with his family, and tinkering in his garage. During the summer, he is the director of the UU Kids Kamp program. According to the students at camp, “Teacher Bob tells really good stories, plays wacky guitar, and is a crazy dancer. “
