Juline Hughes
 

 

Juline A. Hughes – born 9th July 1980 in Anguilla to T. Kathleen Hughes and the late Godwin O. Hughes, is an experienced and Certified Educator. Just recently, in June 2016, she attained her Master of Science Degree in Education from Walden University. Her career in Education began in 2004 after obtaining her Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration from the University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) that same year. Therefore, for the past 12 years she has been contributing to instilling educational development in each of her pupils to the level at which he/she potentially is capable to attain. Her relentless tenure to teach has been and to the present occurs at the Adrian T. Hazell Primary School, formerly Road Primary School.

 
 
During such time, she has embarked on the Joint Board of Teacher Education in association with the University of the West Indies Faculty of Humanities & Education, School of Education and received her Certificate in Teaching. She only needed one year as a finance professor’s assistant and freshman mentor at UVI to confirm teaching as an alternative profession to her career goals. Today, she can attest that it is the age group of students at the primary level rather than the secondary or even tertiary level that keeps her ablaze to continuously develop the foundation of education for each pupil she teaches and encounters. Ensuring her continuous professional development, she has since 2005 to the present participated in the various workshops as sponsored by the Government of Anguilla and Teachers Union workshops in relation to the Leadership Training for Caribbean Teacher Unions.
 
 
A teacher is not limited to implanting education but is also involved in ensuring the wellbeing, morals, values and discipline of a child in school and the community. For this reason, she has become an affiliate and even a member of the Anguilla Red Cross, Anguilla Teachers’ Union and Caribbean Union of Teachers and the Optimist Club. In fact, she is always eager to actively recruit students to the Optimist Club that they may imbed certain morals and values for themselves. Recognizing the improvement and successful results being received from her students, she has decided to continue her career in teaching and also to motivate and mentor young people at the schools and around Anguilla.

Clarissa Richardson
 
 
 
Growing up into a family with and surrounded by educators, Teacher Clarissa knew from a very young age that she was born to teach. As a student of Road Primary School, she recalls being asked to write or share what she wanted to be when she grew up. ‘A teacher’ was always her eager response and over the years, her choice of profession remained the same. Clarissa’s first opportunities to teach came when she would use her recess and lunch breaks to assist other classmates with work they struggled with in class. Throughout her years as a student of the Albena Lake Hodge Comprehensive School, she would often gather her younger siblings and cousins for tutoring or help with homework.
 
After graduating high school, Clarissa became employed by the Government of Anguilla and served as a Clerical Officer for several years. Soon thereafter, she was transferred to the Road Primary School where she took up the post of Teacher Assistant. In this capacity, she worked with grades two and kindergarten. She was also appointed Acting Uncertificated Teacher at fourth grade during this period. One of her most memorable days as a teacher came when received her appointment as Uncertificated Teacher and placed at fourth grade. It is now 2016 and Clarissa A Richardson is still a proud fourth grade teacher at the Adrian T Hazell Primary School.
 
Teaching still remains her passion. She loves working with students and helping them recognize their true potential. Her greatest reward as a teacher is seeing her students make progress whether it is big or small. During her ten years of teaching, she has gained a degree in Elementary Education through the Government of Anguilla’s Teacher Training Program with the University of the West Indies. She is especially thrilled to fulfill her dream of becoming a Certified Teacher and serving her country and her community at the school she attended as a child. Teacher Clarissa’s firm belief is that EVERY child can learn and she has pledged to make a meaningful impact on the lives of her students academically, behaviourally and socially.

I’m a teacher. What’s your superpower? I am Tr. Sabrina Darr-Boodram and I hail all the way from Guyana, South America. My second home is the beautiful island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. I am proud to call Adrian T. Hazell Primary my third home for the past 9+ years. The staff, parents, students and the community over the past years has made it a rewarding teaching experience. I am currently enhancing my profession by completing my Masters in Literacy Studies at the University of the West Indies.

 

I have two passions teaching and volunteer work. My first teaching experience was being a volunteer teacher at a Juvenile High School in St. Vincent in 2004. That’s where I developed the passion to help students learn and grow to their fullest potential. When I am not teaching I do volunteer work with the Anguilla RedCross and the Department of Disaster Management. I like motivating my students to model good citizenship qualities and to respect the values and beliefs of their schoolmates.

 

Finally, I’m obsessed with herbal medicine and travelling. When I am not trying to cure the common cold with turmeric, honey and warm milk, I am busy travelling and learning about new places and cultures.

Hello fellow educators, students, parents and the general public!
I go by the name of Tr. Terron Azille or Teacher T. I began my teaching career in 2009 and I’m still going strong. The Adrian T Hazell Primary School is dear to my heart since I have spent all my years teaching at this institution. I am originally from The Nature Isle of The Caribbean, Dominica, however Anguilla has become a second home to me. Every time I step into the classroom I have two goals in mind:

 

1. To make maximum use of the time given to me to ensure that teaching and learning is taking place.

2. To help every student to reach their full potential.

 

Nothing satisfies me more than seeing my students enthusiastically engaged in the teaching and learning process. I look forward to working with all stakeholders to ensure that we produce individuals who are confident, honest, responsible and posses the necessary skills to contribute to the Anguillian community and the world at large.

About Me!

Very patient, helpful, committed and eager to teach, are words which describe me. I enjoy family life and teaching. After years of changing careers the one which I found to be most comforting and rewarding has been teaching. I posses a passion for helping children move from the known to the unknown.

I have worked as an Early Childhood Educator, for the past four years. I have spent two years at The Outreach Preschool and two years at the Methodist Preschools. At both establishments I was a first year teacher. During the past two years, I have been pursuing an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and have successfully completed in May 2016.

I have been recently employed at this excellent establishment, as a Teacher Assistant at the Learning Centre, that caters to children with special needs and I can say I’m excited to start this new chapter.
I am mentally and physically prepared to purse my quest as an assistant and help with transforming the lives of our students with special needs. With a number of hands-on, engaging activities, the students at the centre will have fun while learning essential life skills.

Chanicia Buchanan
 
 
 

I have been an educator for the past twenty years. During the first eleven years, I worked as a classroom teacher at the Road Primary School now ATHPS. Interacting closely with the students on a daily basis allowed me to see firsthand the many challenges plaguing our students which affects them academically. For this reason I endeavored to pursue a B.A in psychology and then a Ma in school counselling. After graduating from Argosy University in Florida, I returned home to Anguilla where I took up the post of Primary Guidance Counsellor for the ATHPS and AARPS.

 

Our children, just like adults experience stressful and traumatic events which many times create issues in their educational and social lives. As a Guidance Counsellor I am passionate about assisting students through these traumatic and stressful experiences. I facilitate young students by giving them the necessary tools to examine themselves and their situations. My aim is to propel students in becoming safe, respectful, trustworthy, assertive, responsible, and well-rounded individuals who eventually will transfer and apply these qualities to their adult lives.

Ms. Sandra Liddie-Gumbs, B.B.A (Summa Cum Laude)

Over the past two years, many people have asked me why I chose to become an educator, after all, the question seemed fitting after a fourteen year career in the private sector working for an insurance company. Although the apparent, drastic decision was made, my response to the inquiring minds was simple. I wanted to be among the elite whose career impacts, alters and enhances the lives of future generations. It was easy! Out of the hands of the teachers our doctors, lawyers, police, bankers, politicians e.t.c. are produced. They are taught, molded, nurtured and directed by us.

 

In September 2014, I enrolled as Graduate Teacher in the area of Information Communication Technology (ICT) at the Adrian T Hazell Primary and Alwyn Allison Richardson Primary School. I graduated from the University of the Virgin Islands in May 2008 with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration (Summa Cum Laude) with a special emphasis in Computer Information Systems/Computer Applications. As ICT Teacher, I see my role as pivotal to the well rounded development of students. Technology is every changing. Students today are exposed at an earlier age to the good and bad the advancement of technology brings with it. It is my task then to ensure that students understand the basic concepts, utilize and be exposed to as many technological devices, understand the impacts of technology and how it is integrated into every profession and generally to instill greater appreciation for the subject area so that in turn, our students can become innovative, competitive future leaders.

 

For this reason, I too have to stay abreast and continuously advance myself; this is why I will be enrolling in the Post Graduate Diploma in Education in 2017. In the mean time, I am actively sourcing information from accredited online learning institutions to undertake certificated programs in the areas of Education and Technology. It is deeply fulfilling to not only witness students are they grow more proficient and confident in the subject area but to know that I will be contributing!

After graduating from college, I returned home and joined the teaching profession and began teachers training.

 

In 1977 I was able to complete my teacher’s training and earned a certificate in Teacher’s Training from the University of the West Indies. After working for a number of years, I went to England and completed a Master’s Degree in ESL (English as a Second Language).

Natasha Allwaters
 
 
 

I am 35 years old Natasha Allwaters, and I have been a teacher at the Adrian T. Hazell Primary School for the past 10 years. My teaching career began in the year 2000 in the country of Dominica, where I am originally from. I received my certificate as a trained teacher in 2005, after completing three years of study at the Dominca State College.

 

In 2007, I migrated to Anguilla where I resumed teaching as a profession at the then Road Primary School. That same year I enrolled in training to own the title of Reading Recovery Teacher. As such, my post required me to multi- task, as a part-time reading and classroom teacher where I taught morning sessions in the classroom and Reading Recovery in the afternoon.

 

Currently I am a full-time Reading Recovery Teacher at the Adrian T. Hazell Primary School. This position has awarded me the ability to focus on the needs of each individual child that I cater for. I enjoy the fact that I can help to make a difference in the lives of those precious little ones by teaching them strategies that will help them to develop and become better readers. This is the reward that I look forward to on a daily basis from my students.
