Tomorrow Is School

by Don Sawyer

When the people of Toberly Bay, Newfoundland first saw a blue Saab with B.C. plates and two city people in it driving down their main street, they didn't know what to make of it.
When the people of Toberly Bay, Newfoundland, first saw a blue Saab with B.C. plates and two city people in it driving down their main street, they didn't know what to make of it.
The "city people", Don and Jan Sawyer, likewise knew nothing about Newfoundland, or Newfoundlanders. But there they were, ready to take up teaching positions in a remote Newfoundland outport community. In Tomorrow is School Don Sawyer shares his memories of the people of the outport, especially his imaginative, sometimes outspoken, students. It is the story of a dedicated young teacher who sparks an enthusiastic response from young people, tapping their creativity. Best of all, it's a vivid account of a part of Canada unknown to most Canadians.
Tomorrow is School is a humorous, touching account of people of two very different cultures coming into contact, and of what each learns from the other.
