Teacher Tuesday

TeacherTuesday: September 24, 2019

Today’s #TeacherTuesday honors Gary Spack, a member of the  Council Rock Education Association who teaches third grade at Churchville Elementary School.

Gary recently published a new children’s book, “The Cat Burglars.” Congratulations, Gary! Here, Gary talks about teaching in his own words: “Teaching is a second career for me after starting out in the marketing research field. I actually wanted to be a teacher for a long time before I actually went back to school. I just couldn’t figure out what I wanted to teach. I had done a lot of mentoring and training as a marketing researcher, and had taught economics on an adjunct basis at the community college. My wife was an elementary school teacher and I saw how she was affecting the lives of kids every day and making a positive impact and difference. Being a 3rd degree black belt in the martial arts, I had an opportunity to teach my art to kids, some as young as 5 years old. I fell in love with teaching them and helping them learn. That’s when I decided that I wanted to be an elementary school teacher. With the help and encouragement from my wife, who always told me that I had natural teaching ability, it became a reality and there’s been no turning back. My wife was truly my inspiration. I only regret that I didn’t do it sooner.”
