Biography

Robert E Bleicher received a B.A. in Chemistry (with Honors) from the University of California Davis in 1972 and his Ph.D. in educational psychology from U.C. Santa Barbara in 1993. He taught elementary school children and high school science for many years. For the past nine years, he has been a teacher educator at universities in both Australia and the United States.

Dr. Bleicher’s research focuses on how teachers and students communicate during classroom instruction. He has applied his research findings to improve science instruction in schools. Dr Bleicher’s vision for education in the new millennium embraces a hands-on minds-on curriculum. He passionately believes that the modern classroom must help students develop effective communication skills and multicultural sensitivity. He is looking forward to our incoming Freshman class as this is an opportunity to encourage students to consider pursuing the noble career of teaching.
