Journey of an Educator
Memoirs of Dr. Andrew Moonir Khan - A great Educator in Trinidad and Tobago, is the historical memoir of one man's journey in the field of Education when Education was not considered a priority in Trinidad and Tobago. It was indeed a struggle for young Andrew, but he overcame all obstacles and reached the highest pinnacle of his career. His story is both motivational and inspiring. "There is a need for books like this one- books which document the struggle of the first generations of immigrants and their children to carve a place in their society, and then provide the foundation for the next generation to achieve even greater success. In broad terms, this is general knowledge. What is valuable in this book is the step by step description detailing the roadmap by which one successful educator did so. What is also appreciated is the incidental description of day to day life in pre-independence Trinidad. Congratulations - posthumous though they have to be- to Dr. Khan for the foresight in documenting his memoirs for the benefit of those who -generations later - are curious about the journey."
