The UBTECH Education Teacher Ambassador Program is comprised of passionate and community-driven educators committed to helping shape the leaders and changemakers of tomorrow. Ambassadors share our vision of creating a generation of kids who are excited and curious about STEM topics, knowledgeable working with robotics, coding, and artificial intelligence, and are prepared to enter a workforce increasingly in need of 21st-century skills.

Get to know our ambassadors in the coming weeks as we share their stories of what inspired them to get involved in teaching robotics and STEM.

This week’s profile features Dale Rush, STEM Teacher at Polk County Middle School (Mill Spring, NC). 

 

How did you first become exposed to robotics or STEM?

When I became a teacher at Polk County Middle School – 5 yers ago.

What is your favorite thing about teaching robotics or STEM?

I love the variety and the challenge.

How do you see robotics and STEM evolving over the next 5, 10, and 20 years?

I think robotics and STEM will will become more prominent and become a foundational element of education. As robotics evolve and become more involved in our daily lives, people will become more aware of learning about it and using it to their advantage.

What inspired you to become a teacher?

A love for learning and helping others.

What do you think has changed the most about teaching since you first started compared to where you are in your teaching career now?

The use of technology.

What has been the most rewarding experience you’ve had as a result of teaching?

Seeing students’ lives and outlook on learning change as they have experienced new areas of learning.

What advice would you give to those interested in pursuing teaching?

I would advise them to find a niche they feel comfortable with, explore their own educational experiences and use their skills, talents, and abilities to engage and encourage their students to achieve beyond their own belief.
