Ms. Herrita Keyes

My name is Herrita Keyes, I am an international teacher from the beautiful island of Jamaica.

I am a passionate educator who has spent the last 20 years refining my pedagogical skills- 16 of which was spent in the classroom at various levels, 2 years as a Mathematics Coach in the Ministry of Education, Jamaica, and at present, am set on establishing my “Pirate Pride” at Highland Elementary. Studies show that parental involvement in a child’s education is one of the strongest indicators of student achievement. Together we will make our scholars top priority, as I share similar sentiments as Nelson Mandela- “ Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”.
