Rudy Roberts’ students will tell you that he rocks, so it’s no surprise that the Stafford Intermediate Teacher of the Month is from the city that rocks, Cleveland, Ohio.
“Being named Teacher of the Month is an honor,” said Roberts, who teaches sixth grade math. “I pride myself on being able to relate to my students.”
Roberts earned a full basketball scholarship to Fairmont State University in West Virginia, where he earned a degree in health science/nutrition.
He moved to Houston and became interested in teaching, so he began as a substitute teacher. Then, he became certified in teaching mathematics.
“I like mentoring – it’s natural for me to mentor and teach,” Roberts said.
He’s enjoyed teaching at Stafford MSD, which he considers a close, tight-knit family. He’s also coached boys basketball for Stafford High, including last season’s undefeated district championship team.
