StoryCorps: Patricia LaGloria Spence and JeJuan Stewart
From the time she was in first grade, Patricia LaGloria Spence knew she wanted to be a teacher. In 1979, she was assigned to be one of the first African American teachers to integrate the all-white Miami Lakes Elementary school. It wasn’t an easy transition. In the StoryCorps booth, Patricia told her daughter JeJuan Stewart about her first year.
