CEDAR SPRINGS — It’s a safe bet that Austin Hull’s father wont be making another bet with his son anytime soon.

… Here’s how Hull won the bet: He attended classes this year at Grand Rapids Community College and is pursuing an associate’s degree in automotive technology. He plans to keep the ride because his goal is to continue his education at either Ferris State University or the University of Northern Ohio once he finishes up at GRCC.

Changing Stereotypes Men Face

June 2014/Beacon (newsletter for the Michigan Association for the Education of Young Children)

I have had the experience of being a male early childhood educator for the past fourteen years. During this time I have had the luxury of working with a diverse population of children and their families. These experiences have included rural, suburban, and urban environments. These have afforded me the opportunities to successfully identify and meet the educational needs of an ever-changing population.

My current position as a lab instructor at the Grand Rapids Community College Laboratory Preschool has, and continues to allow me, to seek further opportunities for children to extend their learning. In addition, the laboratory also provides college students, who enter our classrooms, a chance to gain practical experiences to become more successful educators. Working with students at this level also gives them the skills to more fully understand the developmental needs of the children. Furthermore, this shared responsibility of guiding students contributes to my responsibilities as a mentor, specifically for male teachers entering the field.
