New standards created for Cayman’s government school teachers have been handed over by Education Minister Rolston Anglin, introducing a document aimed at improving educational standards in the country.

The standards define the professionalism, characteristics and skills expected from teachers in the Cayman Islands.

“I want to express my gratitude and thanks to all of the teachers and consultative boards for making these standards a reality,” Anglin said. “When the national standards development came under construction, our hope was that it would become a key feature in the education system, and we would like teachers and educators to see it as critical in their everyday work.”

Lineth Monteith, principal of John Gray High School, welcomed the change, which created a set of concrete, black and white standards.

“It makes it easier for teachers to know where they stand and where they can go throughout the education system,” she said.

Cayman has teachers from around the world, and the new standards will be particularly helpful in that light, according to Joseph Wallace, principal of the Sir John A Cumber Primary School.

“We have teachers that come from different areas, and it will be good to provide them with a set of guidelines and expectations for teaching in the Cayman Islands,” he said.
