Semi-Educated by Georgie Brooks

$25.44 EX GST

Semi-Educated is a documentation of the first year of Georgie’s life wading through the daily trials, tribulations and occasional joys of being a teacher, written in her trademark gently self-deprecating, amusing style.

‘Everyone knows everything about teachers. They can tell you about their holidays (too long) their days (too short), the amount of time they spend with noisy children (too much), their whinging (too much), their job (too easy), and their personalities (too bossy). I thought I knew what I was doing when I retrained as a teacher as part of my mid-life crisis. Only after several years of teaching did I properly realise that I had no idea…’

‘Everyone knows everything about teachers. They can tell you about their holidays (too long) their days (too short), the amount of time they spend with noisy children (too much), their whinging (too much), their job (too easy), and their personalities (too bossy). I thought I knew what I was doing when I retrained as a teacher as part of my mid-life crisis. Only after several years of teaching did I properly realise that I had no idea…’

In her first memoir, A Year in the Mud and the Toast and the Tears, Georgie and her family moved to the Adelaide Hills to become hobby farmers. As that worked out so well (umm, not!), Georgie decided to tackle her third career (the first two being a lawyer and farmer) as a high school teacher. Semi-Educated is a documentation of the first year of Georgie’s life wading through the daily trials, tribulations and occasional joys of being a teacher, written in her trademark gently self-deprecating, amusing style. A must for fans of A Year in the Mud, teachers, educators and anyone who appreciates dark humour!
