Regents’ Medal for Excellence in Teaching
Teaching Medal Award Winner
As a professor of accounting, Albert Spencer introduces confidence, a readiness to cope with challenges in school, life, the work place environment, and a desire for life-long learning in the students he comes into contact with.
He believes in using cross discipline in his teachings and that no one discipline can stand alone.
A student commented, "One thing that really impressed me about Al Spencer was when we expressed our confusion on a test question. He thanked us for sharing and said that the feedback will help improve his teaching method."
