About this title


In Snapshots 3, Maraj carries the reader into the recesses of his mind in his search for identity. Trapped between two worlds, both physically (Canada and Trinidad) and ideologically (Hinduism and Catholicism), Maraj attempts to reconcile the conflicts. Not only is Snapshots 3 an excellent read, but it could also be a philosophical teaching "textbook" for teachers. It reminds teachers how important words and attitudes are-teachers can speak life into students and inspire them, or they can destroy them with one small slip of the tongue. In Snapshots 3, we see Frank Maraj, the professional teacher, from the first days of his teaching career to the last days. His anecdotes highlight the joys and trials of teaching with reflective insights that challenge the philosophical underpinnings of the educational system.

About the Author:

Frank was born to Bissondaye and Boodram Maharaj of Tunapuna, Trinidad, in November 1940. Apprenticed to a local mechanic before completing elementary school, Frank's secret dream of attending high school was seemingly crushed. Overcoming many obstacles, he attended Saint Charles Boy's High School. Upon graduating, he taught at Saint Charles. His starting salary was $15.00 a month. Frank joined the Civil Service briefly, went to England, and returned to Trinidad to teach at Saint Charles Girl's High School until 1967 when he came to Canada to attend Lakehead University. There, he met his wife of forty-three years, Diana. Over five years, he earned with honors his bachelor of arts, bachelor of education, and master's degree. Frank and Diana have three children and two grandchildren. Frank dedicated thirty-three years to teaching. After retiring in 2005, he continues to share his stories. Frank and Diana currently live in Fort Frances, Ontario, Canada.
