Biography

Greg RuskBefore becoming a teacher in 2009, I spent 16 years in the technology industry. I began my career as a software engineer and through experience, became a well-regarded enterprise architect for large and small projects. I’ve worked in large companies, small companies, and startup companies in several technology domains: aircraft mission control, satellite operations, human language processing, retail sales automation, intelligence operations and research, intelligent networks, collaboration tools, embedded systems, and environmental conservation. While having a successful technology career, I was looking for deeper ways to help others: teaching. The first 9 years of my teaching career were spent in Arlington Public Schools with Arlington Science Focus School (4th and 5th grade) and Discovery Elementary (technology coordinator, 5th grade, and computer science). I am ecstatic about my switch to secondary education at Yorktown, helping students launch into their adult lives. Outside of school, I enjoy urban agriculture with native and hydroponic gardening, digital photography (www.gregrusk.com), bicycling, playing mandolin, helping my community association, exploring technologies for sustainable practices, and living in awe of our natural world.
