A long-serving educator is expressing full confidence in the Jamaican education system to produce high achievers in the classroom and to tangibly address the welfare of teachers.
All Jamaican teachers have a list of go-to phrases that they use frequently in the classroom. If you attended school in Jamaica you are sure to have heard a few of these. Teachers use them for every type of situation in the classroom, from students being unruly to not doing their school work to not paying attention.
Teachers' Day is normally celebrated on 7 May or the first Wednesday in May. In celebration of Teachers' Day, it is common for students and parents to bring teachers gifts. Most schools close early.
