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 Sherry King, Teacher at Grantham Academy (Houston, TX).

 

How did you first become exposed to robotics or STEM?

Teaching.

What is your favorite thing about teaching robotics or STEM?

The hands-on experience.

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

I see robotics and STEM becoming more needed for the world we live in. Technology changes daily and the students will have careers that have not evolved yet.

What inspired you to become a teacher?

I wanted to help students and to let them know someone cares about them.

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

I think the use of technology has changed the most. When I began the students only used the computers in the classroom, now they have their own Chromebooks to complete their assignments on.

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

Students coming to me a year or two later and telling me that I influenced them to become better.

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

Don’t take things personal and build good relationships with your students. The students learn better from the teachers who have good relationships with them.

Find Sherry on Twitter.
