Mr. Adam Arnold

My name is Adam Arnold and I am a relatively new teacher to the North Carolina education system. However, even though I’m a new teacher, I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from my past occupation into my classroom.  After graduation from North West Cabarrus High School in Concord, NC I joined the United States Air Force, dedicating the next 20 years to this great nation of ours. During that time, I worked several different jobs, including being an Air Force Recruiter for Johnston County (2006-2010). However, my primary job was as an Avionics technician. I worked on several different military platforms, including the B-1 Bomber, C-130H, C-130P, C-130J cargo aircraft, RC-135 reconnaissance aircraft, and the EC-130 Compass Call electronic attack aircraft.  My experience working in an industrial environment has given me the tools needed to effectively teach my Advanced Manufacturing/Robotics classes. Advanced Manufacturing is revolutionizing and transforming our world. From improving health care with biomanufacturing and biomedicine to building robots to using artificial intelligence to create self-driving cars, 3D printing to make objects out of thin air, our entire world is changing due to the advancements in modern technologies. This change has motivated the North Carolina Department of Education and Johnston County School system to incorporate this new technology into our classrooms to better prepare our students for a post-secondary education. Advanced Manufacturing is a relatively new program for our state and I’m currently the only Advanced Manufacturing/Robotics teacher for the county and just one of a handful for the entire state of North Carolina. Due to this, our program at North Johnston will be the foundation on which the state builds their program around.

 

I decided to teach because I have a deep passion for seeing young people succeed and mature into productive adults and I applied that mindset to my classroom. I view my job as a teacher just like I would as a supervisor in the Air Force. My job is to prepare my students to be successful and to work side by side with me and by doing so, I treat them as adults and I expect them to act like adults.  One of the benefits I find from not being a career teacher is that I bring a real-world perspective to my classroom, which I find my students appreciate. Through my course, students are able to see real-life tangible connections by learning Advanced Manufacturing/Robotics and a financially rewording careers.  My desire is to build my program up to the point that I can offer a Robotics Club starting in the 23-24 school year.
