A teacher at the Cas­cade School for the Deaf is T&T’s Teacher of the Year.
The ho­n­our was be­stowed on Ek­ka McFee by the T&T Uni­fied Teach­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion (TTUTA) for go­ing be­yond the call of du­ty to “en­sure the es­teem as­cribed to the pro­fes­sion” is up­held.
She said her aim is to see her stu­dents blos­som and move from feel­ing at a dis­ad­van­tage to a place of hope.
She said “My stu­dents may not top the 100 in SEA, or may not gain an award at CXC lev­el, but be­ing able to get them to that place where they can con­tribute to so­ci­ety in a pos­i­tive way, that is my goal,” a beam­ing McFee said.
