About Me

A versatile and committed educationist with a track record of producing results. A dynamic teacher with extensive experience in teaching individuals across the ability range. An accomplished DACUM facilitator with an exceptional command of the DACUM method. I do have excellent analytical, organizational, and communication skills. I have experience in the development of educational materials, instructor training and assessment. My own TVET background and analytical interests in other subjects, together with an easy personal inter-relations and a command of excellent communication skills have left me confident in handling instructional/curriculum issues across a range of subjects. SELECT ACHIEVEMENTS Articulated a Development plan which provided the basis for initiatives to attract funding for University of Guyana’s Institute of Distance & Continuing Education - Distance Education Programme.

The 1999 conference is recognised as the first International Conference on Distance Education held in the Caribbean.
