Who is Mr. Robison?

Hello! I'm Sam Robison, an 8th grade history teacher here at Smiths Station Junior High. I've been here since the 2017-2018 school year. I've taught 8th grade history ever since I joined the SSJH team.

I'm a major social studies nerd, especially history. I double-majored in history and social studies education at UAB, then got a master's in social studies education from UWA. Then, at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, I started my PhD in social studies education at Auburn University, which I'm hoping to finish in the winter of 2024.

I believe in constant improvement as a teacher, so I'll be trying new things this year.

If you need to get in touch with me, please email me at I'll be more than happy to answer your questions. I look forward to this exciting year, and GO PANTHERS!
