When Rob Davis stepped into a Parsons, Kansas second grade classroom over 30 years ago, he knew he had chosen the right profession.
Mr. Davis’s education career has been as diverse as his teaching techniques–from teaching in primary classrooms, to coaching middle school speech and drama students, and even serving as a tutor for child actors on TV series in the early 1980’s. As a student said, “Average teachers may only be with you for one year, but great teachers, like Mr. Davis will be with you for the rest of your life.”
Outside of the classroom, Mr. Davis has “freely given of his talent and creativity for the betterment of our community,” including lending his singing abilities from dramatic productions to sports events. He also is actively involved with the National Wildlife Federation and other environmental organizations.
For the last six years, Mr. Davis has been a gifted education teacher at Liberty View Elementary in Olathe. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Kansas, his master’s degree from Webster University (St. Louis, MO), and his gifted education certification from Emporia State University.
