Education Officer (Modern Languages) in the Core Curriculum Unit of the Ministry of Education, Martha Corbett Baugh, has advised Jamaica’s newest recruits under the Cuba/Jamaica teacher exchange programme, to keep up the good work of their predecessors.
“You are coming into schools that have had excellent top-of-the-class Cuban teachers – you need to keep up the work,” she told the teachers during the first of a two-day orientation and sensitisation session for the educators, at the Alhambra Inn and Restaurant, Kingston on Thursday (August 26).
Mrs. Corbett Baugh said that it has been proven by previous educators that Cuban teachers have the capacity to ensure that students perform well in their exams, and be among the best in the Caribbean.
