Teaching Career

See also: Education in Gibraltar

Adolfo Canepa was born in London, whilst most of Gibraltar's civilian population had been evacuated during World War II. Prior to his involvement in local politics, Canepa was already well known as part of a team of teachers at the Gibraltar Grammar School who helped the Christian Brothers to mould an entire generation of Gibraltarians. He later left teaching, at considerable sacrifice for his wife Julie and young family at the time, to pursue a career in politics.

Famous quotes containing the words teaching and/or career:

    May my teaching drop like the rain, my speech condense like the dew; like gentle rain on grass, like showers on new growth.
    Bible: Hebrew, Deuteronomy 32:2.

    The problem, thus, is not whether or not women are to combine marriage and motherhood with work or career but how they are to do so—concomitantly in a two-role continuous pattern or sequentially in a pattern involving job or career discontinuities.
    Jessie Bernard (20th century)
