This is mandatory if we aim to create critical thinkers not just on the individual level, but also on the societal level. It is extremely important that learners cultivate for themselves a considerable appreciation for reading, writing and literature. They must fall in love with education- and it is of course our role as teachers to progressively enable them to arrive at this point.”
Kerry-Ann is deeply interested in drama, cosmetology, journalism and debate.
