Gale Spear
Professor, Child Care & Development
Austin Community College District
Statement:  After 33 years of teaching the teachers of young children, I still feel enlivened by teaching. This is because, semester after semester, I have the wonderful gift of seeing my students become confident in their power to learn and to be committed early childhood professionals. Teaching in a community college, where the majority of my students are female, and many are first-generation college students, heightens the pleasure I get from seeing my students’ personal and professional transformation.
