Congratulations to the BUT
I am someone who reads The Royal Gazette daily online, and I smiled as I read the heading “BUT celebrating 100 years of fighting for education” in today’s paper (January 31, 2019).
On my arm at this very moment is a watch gifted to me by Doris Corbin, well before her passing, whose dial indicates it was issued at the 90-year mark in the life of that union. It is the watch I wear daily and with pride.
I was never a teacher in Bermuda, but my mother, Helen Somarsall, was from 1947 to the year before her death in 1964.
I myself came late to the profession after working in insurance for the first five years after graduating from university. But then I had a successful career teaching senior high school and junior college mathematics for 26 years before taking early retirement.
In retirement, I have used the same well-honed skills to teach things as varied as haute couture sewing techniques, how to do cryptic crosswords, and English as a second language.
I wish the BUT every success in its continuing efforts to make education in Bermuda the best it can be.
