After graduation from Lafayette College in 1923, Gingrich was hired by Schuylkill College, Reading, Pa. (an Evangelical Church institution) as an Assistant Professor, teaching Greek, Latin, German and the Bible. With the merger of the Evangelical Church and the United Evangelical Church in 1923, it was decided to merge Albright College at Myerstown with Schuylkill College. The merged institution became Albright College, located on the Schuylkill campus in Reading. Gingrich became Professor of Greek and head of the Classical Languages Department, a position he held until his retirement in 1972.

Famous quotes containing the word teaching:
“It may be that through habit these do best,
Coming to water clumsily undressed
Yearly; teaching their children by a sort
Of clowning; helping the old, too, as they ought.”
—Philip Larkin (19221986)
“For good teaching rests neither in accumulating a shelfful of knowledge nor in developing a repertoire of skills. In the end, good teaching lies in a willingness to attend and care for what happens in our students, ourselves, and the space between us. Good teaching is a certain kind of stance, I think. It is a stance of receptivity, of attunement, of listening.”
—Laurent A. Daloz (20th century)
“The doctrine of the Kingdom of Heaven, which was the main teaching of Jesus, is certainly one of the most revolutionary doctrines that ever stirred and changed human thought.”
—H.G. (Herbert George)
