I am very excited to be working with your child this year and would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Steve Robinson. I joined the Millburn staff in 2005 and have taught grades 4, 5, and 8 (Algebra I) at Millburn. Before coming to Millburn, I taught grade 8 (Algebra I, Plane & Solid Geometry Honors) for one year at Deer Path Middle School in Lake Forest.
I have a B.S. in Computer Science Engineering from Northwestern University and a M.A.T. in Elementary Education (with specific endorsements in middle school math, computer science, and physical science) from National-Louis University. Prior to going back to school to become a teacher, I worked in the wireless telecommunication infrastructure industry in a variety of roles, including: software engineer, technical customer support, project manager, product manager, and sales. I also teach an evening math class at the College of Lake County.
I have two kids. My daughter, Katie, attends Clemson University in South Carolina, and my son, Michael, goes to Warren High School. Outside of school, I play trumpet in the Concert Band at the College of Lake County. I enjoy riding my bike, kayaking, taking nature pictures, and reading.I am committed to treating every student as an individual, in a learning environment that is safe for all students to go beyond their own comfort zone as we together explore the world.I strongly believe that open lines of communication between teachers and parents contribute to students’ success. If you want to learn even more about me, my philosophy of education, or even my classroom expectations and procedures, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am thrilled to be working with such an outstanding team of teachers at Millburn Elementary School and look forward to teaching your child this year.
