Hi I'm Mr. Robinette and I'm excited to be teaching science at FMS! We have a lot to accomplish in the months to come and science class is a place for exploration, inquiry, and fun!
A little about me: I grew up in Detroit, Michigan (hence, the reason my dog is named "Ted Nugent") and moved to Colorado where I graduated from the University of Colorado. I've lived in California now for almost 23 years and could never imagine living anywhere else. Prior to teaching I worked in the corporate world for Solvay Pharmaceuticals where I received additional education in pharmacology and pharmacokinetics. Upon completion, I served as a Women's Health Specialist and Mental Health Specialist in physician continuing education specializing in hormone replacement therapy and serotonin re-uptake inhibitors.
I have 13 years experience in K-12 and secondary education but I've also started two successful businesses. I served as co-owner and Director of Marketing for a start-up restaurant chain in Denver, Colorado, winning a "Best of Denver" award in each of its first two years of operation. As co-owner and curriculum development specialist for Second Car Productions, and working in conjunction with the Center for International Trade and Development and the Chancellor's office, I developed the curriculum for The Los Rios Community College District Youth Entrepreneurship Program (Y.E.P) which is available to all students at the each of the four Los Rios campuses.
It has been a busy and exciting few years however, teaching is what I love to do and I'm excited to partner with FMS parents and a stellar group of educators. Science rocks!
