8th Grade Science


Hello Panther Families,


My Name is Rob Bailey, and I teach 8th Grade Science at Heath. This is my first year teaching and my second career. I am very excited to be at Heath to begin this new career, as “Heath is the place to be”. I am originally from Indiana, I graduated from Vincennes University with an Associates degree in Conservation law Enforcement, I then received a Bachelor’s degree from Ball State University in Land Resource Management. For the last 20 years, I worked in the live event audio visual world as an Operations Manager. Two years ago, I went back to school to UNC and received a 2nd Bachelor’s degree in Earth Science, Secondary education.


Away from school, I am married and have two children, 12 and 7. My Wife is an English Professor at UNC and teaches new English teachers. I enjoy Hunting, shooting sports, fishing, camping and other outdoor sports. I volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America. I was a Scout as a kid and I now volunteer as an Assistant Scoutmaster. 



I firmly believe students learn best from their mistakes and they will have a safe environment to fail over and over.
