Susan Gebhardt-Burns
Professor, English
Norwalk Community College
Statement:  There are those who say it takes a village to raise a child; it takes a village to motivate a professor, as well. My “village” is rich: devoted parents, supportive husband, loving children, faithful siblings, wonderful family, gifted colleagues, loyal friends, and eager students. Teaching writing and public speaking at Norwalk Community College is my dream job. First-generation college myself, I have the honor of helping my students—via teaching and academic advising—to reach their own dreams. Nothing better! The thousands of students I have taught in New Jersey, Illinois, Minnesota, West Virginia, and Connecticut have inspired me more than they will ever know. Thank you, all.
