After seven months of training, 35 Ecuadorian teachers are said to have created history through their graduation at the Dominica State College (DSC) on Tuesday, from the ‘first Teach English Caribbean Program’, where they learned to teach English as a second language.
In his speech to the graduates, DSC President Dr. Donald Peters said “In a world characterized by monumental diversity, each of you must use your education to better your country, and the world”.
“You have the education you will need to educate the children of Ecuador, to become global citizens, and become the kind of Ecuadorians who will respect diversity, and build strong society, where your family can enjoy a quality of life”.
“You would be well advised, as teachers, to share your knowledge with those around you.” He declared the teachers “honorary citizens of Dominica,” and stated that DSC has become intellectually richer through that experience.
