B.S. in Education, Mathematics, and Science, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor
Robert has traveled the world in search of experience. Included among the places he’s visited are Niger, Africa, as a Peace Corps volunteer, Saudi Arabia as a curriculum consultant, Israel on a Baha’i pilgrimage, Southeast Asia as a soldier, the AuSable River Canoe Marathon in Lower Michigan as an amateur racer, and the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park in Upper Michigan as a lover of things wild and filled with song.
He and his spouse, Nancy Schwartz, Conserve School Art Teacher (at left, with Robert), lived the “good life” and produced much of their own food while their four children were young. His interests are broad with projects that range from robotics and software design to making pots. Some of the projects that he works on with students in science class include studying phenology and the monarch butterflies he raises at Conserve.
