GIS – Teachers’ Appreciation Week officially closed on Tuesday, Oct. 11.

Minister for Education, Innovation, Gender Relations and Sustainable Development, Hon. Dr. Gale T.C. Rigobert, who is a former lecturer at the University of the West Indies’ Saint Augustine Campus, spoke on the importance of the teaching profession.

“Teachers are called upon to make an extraordinary sacrifice,” she said. “They do so with love, compassion, wisdom and patience. No amount of money can adequately compensate teachers for what they do.”

Minister Rigobert pledged to ensure conducive working environments for educators.

“Let me thank all teachers—the educators in this country—for the invaluable work that they do and the extraordinary sacrifice that they make. I will continue to listen and to work with you to ensure that your working environment is relatively comfortable to allow you to deliver of your best to our nation’s children, so that together we can grow and develop into the nation that we have all envisioned.”

Teachers Appreciation Week was observed from Oct. 4 – 11 under the theme “Valuing Teachers, Improving their Status.”

  1. This Minister of Education is no doubt miles ahead of the failed Robert Lewis. She is hard working and is doing her best to help the schools recover from years of neglect. She will definitely make things better.
