About the Author

Bob Anterhaus was born and raised on the wrong side of the tracks in St. Louis, Missouri. He never thought he would be so successful in life and didn’t even think he would live this long. Although he didn’t realize it his successes and many failures, including dropping out of high school, were all leading him to become a special education teacher. Bob had a Down syndrome brother who died at 27 years old and has a disabled step son.
Bob was a special education teacher in the Dallas Independent School District for twenty years but retired in January of 2012 because his students were moved to other schools and his contract wouldn’t have been renewed at the end of the school year. If that didn’t occur he would still be teaching. He taught autistic students in 3 different elementary schools for 11 years and special education regular students who needed help in reading and math for 9 years. He graduated from Southern Methodist University and holds a Master’s Degree from the University of Dallas. Bob is married to Joanne Ducotey Anterhaus and has two sons, a stepson, and a stepdaughter.
