M. Louis Robinson

B.S. in Communications from Syracuse University; M.S.Ed in Elementary Education (summa cum laude), Pace University. Louis has an extensive career in the field of education. He began his career as an ELL educator in the Connecticut Public School System. As a New York City Teaching Fellow corps member, he taught elementary school children in the boroughs of Brooklyn (Bedford-Stuyvesant) and Manhattan (Harlem). During his tenure in the New York City public school system, Louis has served as a master teacher, coach, and mentor to both educators and scholars alike. As a social "edupreneur," Louis aspires to launch an all-boys academy with a strong emphasis on mentorship and leadership. Its mission will be to restore the whole gentleman by implementing a holistic approach to learning and development. His motto is a quote from one of his favorite movies, The Great Debaters, which states "I believe we (educators) are the most privileged people in America because we have the most important job in America--the education of our young people".
