Time is of the Lessons: An Island's Heritage

Time is of the Lessons: An Island's Heritage

ByWilliam C. Hefferton

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
In this memoir, William "Bull" Hefferton recalls his thirty years as a teacher and coach in Newfoundland's educational system at the end of the Twentieth Century and compares his experiences and career with those of his uncle, Samuel J. Hefferton, who taught at the beginning of the Twentieth Century and was made Newfoundland's first Minister of Education in 1949. <br /><br /> Citing his uncle's diaries, speeches, and conversations, Hefferton explores the differences and similarities of a timeless profession separated by the gulf of Time. He covers the topics of school routine, punishment, sports, attendance, and the philosophical nature of education itself. <br /><br /> Not to mention a few pranks and general shit-disturbing along the way.
