Kent Robertson received a BA in Education from Glenville State College with teaching certifications in: 8-12 Mathematics, 8-12 Science. He taught in private and public high schools in the Charlottesville, Virginia area for 10 years where he earned the additional endorsement to teach behaviorally emotionally disabled students.

Kent came to North Carolina with his wife to teach at the Eastern North Carolina School for the Deaf (ENCSD). Kent became the high school science teacher at ENCSD. While teaching at ENCSD, he embraced the challenge of learning sign language through immersion in the deaf culture and earned a fourth teaching endorsement for the Hearing Impaired.

Kent discovered computational science at one of Shodor's workshops. He fell in love with the computational science approach to science instruction. While continuing to teach at ENCSD he was able to join the SUCCEED-HI team. As a member of the SUCCEED-HI team he developed computational science lessons for deaf students. The challenge in SUCCEED-HI was finding enough time to create the endless list of models and lessons he continually dreamt of. In the summer of 2002 he was able to join the staff of Shodor full time as the content manager for SUCCEED-HI.

Today Kent manages Shodor projects funded by NSF and North Carolina's Office of Educational Services to conduct research and train teachers and sign language interpreters in methods of increasing deaf student's access to science and mathematics.

After hours Kent can be found outside playing in the garden, hiking in the woods, and kayaking in our beautiful Carolina swamps.
