I'm Robert Laurie. This is my fifth year at Rocky Mountain High School, though I gained some valuable experience as a student-teacher here in 2005 and have taught at Highland High School in Ault, CO, and as a graduate-teacher at Colorado State University. I love literature-- reading, writing, teaching, and learning it. My favorite authors are William Shakespeare, Cormac McCarthy, John Steinbeck, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, and John Donne. In my free time, I like to lace up my shoes and run--especially on the trails in the foothills of Fort Collins. I am an avid fan of sports including soccer, football, and baseball. But my favorite way to spend my time is living life with family.
My current courses are English 9 (where we're piloting a project-based curriculum called "Compose Our World" with the support of the University of Colorado, Boulder) and British Literature and Composition (which offers concurrent enrollment with the University of Colorado, Denver through their CU Succeed program). On the extracurricular level, I am proud to be a coach of the Rocky Men's JV Soccer team and a staff supporter of the RMHS literary magazine--The Looking Glass--along with Mr. Jim Glenn.
