Robert J. Rethemeyer, M. of Ed. and Ed. Specialist, is the Regional School wide PBS Consultant for the Central RPDC which is housed in Room 232 of the Foster-Knox Complex at the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg, MO.
Robert joined the RPDC in November of 2007 after spending thirty years being a middle school teacher, middle school principal, summer school principal, summer school coordinator, professional development coordinator, and college adjunct instructor. In his previous roles, he has learned how students, educators, and school administrators — at building level and district level — function. His experiences in working with at-risk students, both as a teacher and summer school principal, implementing and creating pre-service and ongoing mentoring activities for beginning teachers as the professional development coordinator, plus teaching and supervising traditional and alternative certification students as an adjunct instructor at the University of Central Missouri have created a varied experiential background from which to draw upon as he begins his role as the Positive Behavior Support Coordinator for the Central RPDC.
Outside of professional activities, Robert helps his wife of 36 years take care of her mother, father, and grandmother.Additionally, keeping up on the latest news of their daughter and son-in-law who have blessed them with two grandchildren and their son provide plenty of discussion around the dinner table.
