Teacher Marthita Leslie a Pillar in Education

Can’t really tell what year they graduated from the San Pedro R.C. School but here we can appreciate Miss Lucy Trejo and Miss Marthita Leslie’s Infant one class of the only primary school on the island in early 1970’s.  Young, energetic and intelligent Mrs. Leslie’s trademark has always been the infants where her principals had the confidence that she would give them the best foundation in Reading, Writing and Arithmetic (the three R’s).  

It worked both ways as Marthita begged her boss to allow her to remain in the infants section and parents begged her also for her to be with their young children.  She must have done a great job with her students because today we find a lot of them holding important positions in the community. Indeed Marthita Leslie has been a pillar in education in San Pedro. A bit difficult to tell all their faces but if you recognize any feel free to identify them on the comment box below.

The R.C. School was founded sometime perhaps in the 1920’s and still going strong today.
