Mike Roberts

Rowland Hall Middle School
English Teacher
Salt Lake City
Mike Roberts has taught middle school English for the past twenty-one years. In that time, he has received numerous awards for his outstanding teaching, including being named the 2014 Utah English Teacher of the Year and NCTE's Outstanding Middle Level Educator in 2009.

Mike's most recent book, Chasing Greatness: 26.2 Ways Teaching is Like Running a Marathon, breaks down the many similarities between the classroom and the road. In the process, he shares advice from some of the best teachers and runners from across the country as a way to help you reach your highest potential. He is also the author of Hacking Classroom Management - 10 Ideas to Help You Become the Type of Teacher They Make Movies About, which identifies a variety of strategies that empower students in the learning process. Finally, he is the co-author of The New Science Teacher's Handbook: What You Didn't Learn From Student Teaching, and was a featured columnist in English Journal.

In addition to his middle school duties, Mike also teaches college classes focused on classroom management and literacy in the content areas. He has served on many educational committees, and has been a featured speaker at dozens of state, regional, and national conferences.

When he's not teaching or presenting, Mike can usually be found running ultra-marathons in the mountains. And even after all these years, he's still not sure which takes more energy...a week with 8th graders or running a 100 mile race.
