B.A. in Economics, Morehouse College; M.S. Ed. in Elementary Education, Pace University. In May 2000, after earning a degree from Morehouse College, Robert began a career in business at Pricewaterhouse Coopers as a Litigation Consultant for the Dispute Analysis and Investigations team. Just two years later he decided he wanted to become an urban school leader and enrolled in the New York City Teaching Fellows program. As a first-year sixth grade teacher, Robert founded the Young Men’s Mentoring Group—an organization that provides sixth graders with character development, guidance and exposure to cultural events in New York City. In the fall of 2005, he developed a proposal for Young Scholars Academy that met the approval of the city to open a new small school.
Robert is now an 8th Grade Math teacher at Marietta Middle School in Atlanta, GA.
