Robert has worked as a writer and editor for North Jersey Newspapers, AAA, and Canyon Ranch and has served in the Lenox Public Schools. He says teaching offers an opportunity to inspire and encourage what he hopes will be a lifelong love of learning and search for meaning. It inspires him, every day, to continue to grow his own knowledge and understanding. At Montclair State, he was awarded the McGee Scholarship, the English department’s highest award for excellence in literature studies. Robert is also a singer/songwriter, performing and recording as part of   the Berkshire-based folk duo, Oakes and Smith.
