Ricky Robertson


Ricky Robertson has had the privilege to work with students from PreK to 12th grade who have persevered in the face of adversity and trauma. As a consultant and coach, he assists schools in developing trauma-informed systems of support and restorative practices that foster resilience and success for staff and students. His relationship-based approach to teaching resulted in his student passing rates on state math assessments improving from 55% to over 90%. He was featured on PBS's American Graduate in 2013 because of this work. Ricky currently holds a teaching credential (K-12 Special Education) and Washington State school administrator certification. As a teacher, behavior specialist, and coach, he has worked in K-12 traditional and alternative schools. He holds a master’s degree in education from City College of New York and a master’s degree in educational leadership from Western Governors University. Ricky is the co-author of Building Resilience in Students Impacted by Adverse Childhood Experiences: A Whole-Staff Approach.
