CLEVELAND, TN (WRCB)-  Dr. Jason Robinson has joined the faculty of Lee University as an assistant professor.

"We are thrilled to have a nationally recognized educator joining our faculty here in the DeVos College of Education," said Dr. Bill Estes, dean of the school. "The talent and experience Jason brings will further our efforts in producing the best teachers in the nation."

Robinson has been a public school teacher for the past 15 years, most recently at Ocoee Middle School, along with being a part-time lecturer at Lee. He is known in the community for conducting family science nights and professional development activities for teachers.

Robinson is the founder and director of the Rocket City Slammin' Science Camps held each summer for elementary and middle school students and of the Super Science Saturday program for local school children and their families. He has also directed or led education and leadership events in Argentina, Cambodia, Ecuador, Indonesia, Nicaragua, South Africa, and South Korea.

He is a past recipient of the National Science Teachers Association "Vision of Science" Award, the Fitzgerald Excellence in Education Award, Tennessee Science Teacher of the Year, the State Farm Good Neighbor Award for Teachers, and a finalist for Tennessee Teacher of the Year. In 2002 and 2011, Robinson was recognized as Bradley County's Teacher of the Year.

Robinson has been featured in national publications such as National Geographic, Parenting, Family Fun, and Congressional Quarterly. He currently represents NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory as a solar System Ambassador and Master Teacher for the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experimentation program.

Having served on various committees of the Tennessee State Department of Education including the Advisory Council on Teacher Education and Certification, Robinson was also recently named to the Tennessee State Textbook Commission by Gov. Bill Haslam.

Robinson earned his doctorate in learning and leadership from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, his master's in educational administration and supervision from Lincoln Memorial University, and his bachelor's in human development from Lee University.

Robinson is married to Faith, a teacher at North Lee Elementary, and they have two children, Noah and Maddie. He and his family attend North Cleveland Church of God.
