Mr. Robinette

Hi I'm Mr. Robinette and I'm excited to be teaching science at SMS!  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 and moved to Colorado where I graduated from the University of Colorado.    I've lived in California now for almost 26 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. 
Cooking and reading are my passions, as well as being outdoors, fitness, and classic and punk rock.  I also play the guitar (poorly) and I used to play the drums until my youngest daughter stole my drum kit.   
I have 18 years experience in K-12 and secondary education but this is my first year at Sutter Middle after spending the last several years down the street at Folsom Middle.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time with your questions or concerns.  I am excited about meeting my new students!
