To all of the teachers here on the island and throughout the nation of Belize - have a happy and blessed Teacher's Day.

I would think that everyday should honour teachers. They spend 8 hours a day with our kids instilling not only knowledge, discipline and caring, but also admiration and respect.

The San Pedro Town council honoured the teacher's last night with a wonderful waiter service meal at the Lion's den followed by live music and dancing. Kudos to the town for showing such appreciation to these often times unsung heroes of society.
