Meet Robert Rounsaville
Education is in Robert Rounsaville’s blood. Not only were both of his parents teachers but so were just about every sibling, aunt and uncle in his family. As a result, he knew at an early age that he wanted to be a teacher. “I never considered anything else,” said Mr. Rounsaville. “I enjoy getting to know kids and their families.” The educator, who was born in California but raised in Alaska, obtained his Bachelor’s degree in education from Arizona State University and his Master’s degree in administration from Northern Arizona University.
After teaching for 8 years, he served as an elementary school principal for 21 years. After 4 years as a principal in Arizona, he moved to Illinois where he served as the principal at Goodings Grove School for 15 years. He then helped open the district’s Kindergarten Center as their principal for 2 years before taking on the role as Director of Support Personnel Services.
Mr. Rounsaville has three children -- all of whom attended Homer 33C schools.
