Rob has been a member of the Chadwick School faculty since 2011 and an educator since 2000. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Lane College, a Master of Arts in International Relations from Webster University, and he completed the coursework toward a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership at Saint Louis University. Rob teaches United States History, Global Studies, and Issues in African History. He also teaches for the Online School for Girls and serves as a Site Director for Johns Hopkins University's Center for Talented Youth. A native of Memphis, Tennessee, Rob is married and the proud father of four children, two sons and two daughters.

There are certain characteristics that one will immediately notice when visiting Rob’s classroom. First and foremost, learning happens in his classroom through hands-on inquiry. He invites students to take part in spirited oral and written analysis of assigned primary and secondary sources. His students ask questions. They interrogate the text, each other, and they ask questions of him. By using information from historical content, Rob is able to help students link the ideas, theories, and actions of the past to issues that are relevant to the students’ lives and the world that they live in today. From discussions about #blacklivesmatter and the implications for the Iran Nuclear deal, to conferences about China’s growing economic impact and the autonomy for the princely state of Jammu and Kashmir, his students wrestle with tough concepts that matter. Students are focused on the concepts, underlying ideas, and delve deep into the meaning of these issues. Finally, in Rob’s classes, students are pushed to think hard, communicate clearly, and encouraged to reflect. He works with students to make their classroom a place where all ideas and perspectives are greeted with respect and in which students feel safe in voicing their intellectual musings, conjectures, and conclusions. He continues to be moved by his students and their curiosity.

Rob has received numerous awards for his work in education and in the larger community.

Rob has led workshops on the ISEE for several organizations opening the door to educational opportunities for thousands of young people in this nation.

With over a decade’s worth of experience, Rob has taught a number of courses in the discipline. Throughout his career, Rob has had the opportunity to create multiple classes, including: Leadership, International Organizations, Teaching Jazz as American Culture, Global Studies, African Studies, and Introduction to International Relations Theory. In one of the courses Rob created, Introduction to Modern African History and Politics, the course was designed in a way that allowed his students the opportunity to receive college credit through St. Louis University’s 1818 Advanced College Credit Program.
