Mr. Jamie Robinson

Welcome Roadrunners!  This is my18th year in education and I am thrilled to be the first principal at Van Raub Elementary.  I am proud to be the first in my family to go to college and received my degree in Reading from Angelo State University, along with my Masters in School Administration.  I taught for ten years in 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades and worked with different district-level programs.  My favorite part of what I do is having great relationships with our staff, families, and students.   This year, we are utilizing Genius Hour on Fridays, Chromebooks for every student, implementing Whole-Brain Teaching, and increasing student engagement through our flexible learning spaces and seating.  I am passionate about what I do and am here to support every student.  At VRES, we are working hard to change the paradigm in education from traditional to contemporary to develop a well-rounded 21st Century student that will be a successful citizen.

Hello Amazing Roadrunners, families, and community members. I began my career in Education in 2006 and I am so excited to be part of such a supportive staff, student, and community full of life-long learners! At Van Raub, we are implementing the following innovations/initiatives: whole-brain teaching, project-based learning/challenge-based learning, Genius Hour, and Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) through our beautiful flexible learning spaces and classrooms.

These initiatives complement each other in supporting our learners to begin their journey as a 21st Century student. This journey challenges all students to grow as a critical thinkers, collaborators, communicators, and creative problem-solvers.

I am passionate about all facets of this work at Van Raub. I truly enjoy the daily work with our amazing teachers who carry out and support us as they synthesize the student-learning. This shift from traditional to contemporary prepares our students for challenges and teaches them some necessary skills for future success.

I thank all of you for this opportunity and look forward towards our collaborative growth together as we continue to serve!
