The Accidental Teacher : The joys, ambitions, ideals, stuff-ups and heartaches of a teaching life Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

With his sharp wit and poet's eye, Tim Heath writes of a forty-year career, mostly in New Zealand but also in Samoa.

He's worked in small country schools, in big city schools, at the Correspondence School, in primary schools and in secondary schools.

He's been a principal and a deputy principal. Teaching wasn't his first choice, but once in the classroom he found his calling. Tim is a passionate advocate for children and their learning, and his educational philosophy is illustrated through touching anecdotes of children and their struggles and successes. Written against the backdrop of changing times in New Zealand, this memoir is a deep dive into education and its place in our world.
