4 OVERVIEW The privilege of the educator is being afforded the opportunity to shape the minds of students. To help them discover and develop a true appreciation for learning, while also discovering and developing the great talents within them. Whether a teacher of mathematics, history or art; to their students, educators are not only stores of knowledge, but are sources of inspiration, guardians of student aspirations and models of leadership. They play a very important role in the lives of their students and in the communities they serve, because it is in the classroom that lives and communities are built. Students meeting the requirements for entry into education degree programmes are eligible for Bahamas Government sponsored grants. These grants cover tuition expenses and a monthly stipend for books and other college expenses. Upon graduation, grant recipients are bonded to public service employment for a specified period.

7 ALUMNI REFLECTIONS The College of The Bahamas without a doubt played the most integral part in shaping who I am today as an educator. By the end of the programme one left with a sound commitment to education and to the development of young minds. The training and insistence of professionalism certainly helped me develop a strong work ethic. Tanya Bowe, Principal, Bishop Michael Eldon AA 1989 As a graduate of COB I ve had the opportunity to reflect on the time I spent there. I appreciate COB for enhancing my work ethic, time management skills and thirst for knowledge. I ve always believed in the importance of educators and the School of Education sustained my belief. Educators know how educators learn, thus we were exposed to hands on techniques and experience in the schools throughout our entire undergraduate career to ensure that we were prepared. I can say in all honesty that I love my alma mater! Shannon Evans, Graduate Student, Hampton University B.Ed 2010
