This chapter is a narrative of my experiences over 44 years of teaching in Christian schools. Through literature and my experiences, I trace changes over this time in pedagogy, philosophy, and the accountability of teachers. The changes I discuss include students’ life priorities and career choices, sustainability, social awareness, multiculturalism, discrimination, gender-related issues, teacher accountability, technology, teaching conditions, behaviour management, individualised instruction, problem-solving, parent input, community expectations, globalisation, legal issues, and child protection. I trace these changes from an academic as well as a personal perspective, with my overriding theme being that the aim has always been to introduce each student to Jesus in the process of educating the whole person.
