?I have the unique opportunity to work with all teachers to help them to find resources to help in the teaching learning process?it is not an easy thing to do but it is something I love to do??By Sharmain Grainger September can be considered a very special month in these parts. Not only has it been designated Education Month but also Amerindian Heritage Month as well.The associated commemorative activities are understandably numerous and continue all month long.While for some the focus is on the education related activities, there are others who indulge in the Amerindian festivities.But there are yet others who give equal focus to both the education activities and the celebration of our first people; and with good reason too. One such person is Mrs. Myra Pierre-Moore.Not only is she an Amerindian descendant with a passion for her heritage but also our Special Person this week who has been a devoted educator for many years.But before we share her plans to preserve her heritage and detail some of her contributions to the education sector let?s take a brief look at Pierre-Moore?s origin.Education pathBorn to Philbert and Hilda Pierre on December 2, 1969,[url=http://www.nfljerseyscheaponline.us@#$%&/]Wholesale NFL Jerseys Online[/url], she was raised in the riverain community of Koriabo, a Mabaruma sub-region in the Region One North West District.The second of seven children, she attended the St Mary?s Primary School until the age of 11. She subsequently was the beneficiary of a hinterland scholarship which allowed her to travel to the capital city of Georgetown to attend Christ Church Secondary School.Myra Pierre-Moore,[url=http://www.nfljerseyscheaponline.us@#$%&/]Cheap Jerseys From China Online[/url], Head of NCERD?s Learning Resource Development Unit.During an interview with me recently she described her initial introduction to the city as a ?whole culture shock?. Not only was there a complete change in the environmental setting but the way of life was unlike anything she had ever experienced.The young Myra was entrusted into the care of a guardian who lived at Albert Street, Queenstown, Georgetown. The accommodation was comfortable but she was just a puny child who hadn?t much experience taking care of herself. She was very sad to be away from home.?I cried most of the time?? she recalled. ?I didn?t know to wash my clothes; I didn?t know to do a lot of things but I had to learn,? added Pierre-Moore who also noted that some older girls who shared the same accommodation did give her some much needed assistance.The start of her first day of secondary school was a tearful one but after literally being taken into the arms of a senior student who comforted her, Pierre-Moore was able to fit right into secondary school life.She recognized the need to focus on her work and therefore walked with purpose the path to school each day. There weren?t too many people she called ?friend? and so she couldn?t wait for the holidays to return to the familiarity of Koriabo and the modest domicile in which she grew up.With her husband, Mr Keith MooreThe Amerindian wayAmong her fondest memories of home was canoeing to school a short distance away. The community in which she lived was sparely populated. There were perhaps no more than 200 residents. Getting to a neighbour?s house would require about a half a mile travel by paddle boat.Pierre-Moore?s father, like most people in Koriabo then, was a farmer. According to her, subsistence farming was the norm but there was often enough produce reaped to bring in an income to support individual households. Among the popular produce were coffee, corn, ginger and of course ground provision.During her primary school days, Pierre-Moore recounted that there were, at least,[url=http://www.2017draftshop@#$%&/david-njoku-jersey/]David Njoku Jersey[/url], three ?big? farmers who also offered employment to some residents. ?At that time Region One was a farming area and you had a lot of produce from there being sent to Georgetown,[url=http://www.salecheapjerseys.us@#$%&/]NFL Jerseys From China[/url],? said Pierre-Moore as she recalled how each person in every household knew something about farming.?I remember going to the farm when I came home from school?it was expected of you. I remember picking coffee beans, going through the process ? milling and so on?I mostly remember the coffee, and picking corn,? said Pierre-Moore.While her family did not live in a benab, but rather lived in a regular wooden house that might have had a thatched roof and then later zinc sheets, there weren?t too many efforts to embrace the traditional Amerindian lifestyle.There were however always traditional foods around. ?My mom did the cassava and so on?so we always knew about that, she taught us how to grate, scrape, and bake cassava bread, we were always making cassareep and so on??Importance of heritageIn the company of family membersBut even as she stressed the importance of heritage in any land, Pierre-Moore boasted of being born into the Warraus Amerindian tribe. She doesn?t know too much about the tribe but is on a mission to reverse this state of affairs. ?Presently I think learning all I can about my tribe is very important?now that I am all grown up I feel maybe envious of other (Amerindian) people who know all there is to know about their tribes? who know their (tribal) language and can actually communicate with each other,? said Pierre-MooreShe noted that while she remembers hearing her grandparents communicating in their tribal tongue when she was young,[url=http://www.wholesalejerseyssale.us@#$%&/]Cheap Jerseys Authentic[/url], this was not practised among the younger generation.However, she is on course to addressing this situation which currently sees her making keen efforts to even learn the simplest of words in her tribal language.?It is important for us to know,? said Pierre-Moore as she alluded to the Amerindians in Regions Eight and Nine who fluently communicate at all age levels, on a daily basis, in their respective tribal dialect.And this could be possible for all Amerindian tribes, Pierre-Moore is convinced. ?I have been in villages and I have interacted and I have seen this for myself,? she noted.She speculated that the limited interest in tradition, exhibited by some Amerindians, could be linked to a move by outsiders to force other cultures on them.Just recently President David Granger announced plans to rescue Amerindian languages and Pierre-Moore is among the Amerindians who are ready and willing to support such efforts.And she is in an ideal professional position to render support in this regard.A passionate educatorAfter completing her secondary education, Pierre-Moore decided to embrace a passion for teaching that she had long developed. Upon her return to her home village she was given the privilege to offer teaching support to the very primary school ? St Mary?s Primary ? which she had attended herself several years earlier.She remembers all too well working along with the head teacher there. But it wasn?t long after that the task of heading the school, with a population of some 35 children, was thrust upon her.?For me it was a lot because I was alone and just out of school and I had to find ways and means to make it work,? she recalled. But this was only the beginning for her as she was even them committed to being the best at whatever she did.Over the course of her teaching career she has taught and rendered needed support at a number of hinterland schools with distinction. She, at times, even implemented unorthodox styles of delivering lessons to children of multi-grade schools in the hinterland.It wasn?t always smooth sailing but she never implemented a teaching method that didn?t work. ?I got myself into trouble sometimes?I wasn?t aware that you can?t change teaching methods without prior consent from the administrators of the Department of Education?but I did and I even helped other (hinterland) teachers plan their scheme of work outside of the traditional way but I didn?t get permission so that made it wrong,? she confessed.Of course her methods were simply her way of putting into action what she?d learned at Teaching College and subsequently the University of Guyana.But although she was not always lauded for her efforts, her extraordinary teaching talent saw her being named the Most Outstanding Teacher of Region One in 1994.Pierre-Moore, who is currently the holder of a Master?s Degree in Education, has also served as an Education Officer and Hinterland Coordinator attached to a World Bank programme which saw immense development of the primary and secondary delivery of education in the hinterland regions.She currently is the Head of the Learning Resource Development Unit at the Kingston, Georgetown, National Centre for Education Resource Development, a crucial portfolio that gives her the opportunity to help enhance the delivery of education throughout Guyana.?Being here gives me the opportunity to see how best I can help teachers across the education districts?I have the unique opportunity to work with all teachers to help them to find resources to help in the teaching learning process?it is not an easy thing to do but it is something I love to do,? asserted Pierre-Moore.Her laudable contributions thus far to the education sector are innumerable but she insists that she is poised to continue to serve in any capacity once it will further the development of education, especially in the hinterland regions.As an educator she is especially ready to not only help in the mainstream delivery of education but any capacity that she can share her knowledge. Perhaps her current position is a strategic one to most effectively realize her goal of helping to preserve the various Amerindian dialects.Despite her keen focus to the development of education and her intent to help preserve her heritage,[url=http://www.cheapjerseysshare.us@#$%&/]Cheap Jerseys[/url], Pierre-Moore is still able to find time for her family, including her husband,[url=http://www.wholesalenfljerseyssale.us@#$%&/]Cheap NFL Jerseys[/url], Mr Keith Moore, a Vector Control Officer attached to the Ministry of Health.
