RIP Baba …

He obtained his BSc degree in Educational Sciences from Allameh Tabataba’i University (Iran) in 1979. Initially he taught at primary and secondary schools in his hometown, Tafresh, for many years. Thereafter, he volunteered to defend his country during the Iran-Iraq war and spent more than 40 months in the frontline. He later managed a Teacher Training centre in Yasuj (Iran) for two years followed by performing at a senior position as the Director-general of Ministry of Education of Markazi Province (Iran) and remained there for 4 years. He progressed onto his next accomplishment as the Director-general of Ministry of Education of Bushehr Province (Iran) for a further of 5 years. These years are still regarded by many as the golden period seen in terms of the development of educational infrastructure in such deprived areas all thanks to him. Later, he received his MSc and PhD degrees in Educational Administration from the Islamic Azad University – Science and Research Branch. Afterwards, he progressed forward from a lecturer to senior lecturer and associate professor of Educational Administration while he was the editor in chief for Journal of Educational Administration Research Quartey since 2008. He was the head of Rudehen Azad University for 5 years during this time too.

Last month, I lost my beloved father, Dr. Gholam Hussein Heydari Tafreshi. May Allah rest his soul in peace. To me, he was far beyond this professional biography. To me, he was the purest and kindest soul I have ever witnessed. Last month, I buried a mountain, RIP Baba.
