A GENTLEMAN AND A SCHOLAR

Author: Sharen McDonald

Synopsis: What makes a successful educator? The significant contributions made by Don Barnes as a teacher and vice-principal at Macdonald High, and then as principal of Hudson High (schools in the Lakeshore School Board on Montreal’s West Island) resulted from many factors in his life. Barnes grew up during WWII in Ealing, West London, and emigrated to Canada mid-century, where he later found his niche education. The author reveals how one person’s experiences provided the necessary ingredients for the creation of fair, firm and friendly school environments in which students felt secure and appreciated as individuals.
