- Program Manager, National Sustainability Teachers' Academy, School of Sustainability
Rob McGehee is program manager for the Walton National Sustainability Teachers’ Academy, a program within the Rob and Melani Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives. By leveraging the synergies with the complementary Wells Fargo Regional Sustainability Teachers' Academy, the two programs have reached more than 500 teachers in 47 states since the program began in 2015. Rob has co-led 16 workshops in 11 locations.
The hallmark of this program is that it goes beyond traditional teacher continuing education to facilitate the actual implementation of teacher led projects and programs in schools. As a result of Rob’s leadership, participating teachers have gone on to train over 2,500 other teachers in their schools and districts. To date, 149 projects are underway in various schools across the country.
Rob is currently pursuing an MA in Learning Sciences at ASU's Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College. He also enjoys hiking, bird watching and bicycling.
