Bob Anterhaus was born and raised on the wrong side of the tracks in St. Louis, Missouri. 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 disabled stepson, and a stepdaughter. Bob also had a Down syndrome brother who died at 27 years old.

Bob was a special education teacher in the Dallas Independent School District for twenty years. He retired in January of 2012 because his students were moved to other schools and his contract wasn’t going to be renewed at the end of the school year. If those circumstances had not occurred, he would still be teaching. He taught autistic students in three different elementary schools for 11 years and special education for regular students who needed help in reading and math for nine years.

Although he didn’t realize it, his many successes and failures, including dropping out of high school, all led him to become a special education teacher. He never thought he would be so successful in life and didn’t think he would even live this long.
