Ms. Ingrid Monica Trotman
Assistant Chief Education Officer (Nursery)

I started my teaching career in 1992 at Hague Nursery School on the West Coast Demerara and proceeded to the Cyril Potter College of Education in 1993-1995 where I pursued the Pre-Service Nursery Programme and graduated with the following awards:

  • 1st runner-up Best Student (Nursery).
  • Best Science student
  • Best teacher on Teaching Practice and
  • Best Individual Study Kit

Nov. 2000 Certificate in Education. University of Guyana (Credit)
Nov. 2002 Bachelor of Education. University of Guyana (Credit)
I was then seconded to the Cyril Potter College of Education as a tutor in Child development where I spent one year, then was appointed as an Assistant Lecturer at the University of Guyana.
At the University, I received a scholarship to read for the Masters in Education Leadership in Early Childhood Development (MELECD) at the University of West Indies , Mona campus Jamaica.

I was also the recipient of a certificate in the Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ) Trinidad & Tobago as an assessor in Early Childhood Education, Care and Development.
My vision for the Early Childhood Programme is to ensure that every child receives a foundation that will enable him/her to become a well-rounded individual who is capable of becoming a literate, responsible and respectable citizen of Guyana.
My goals as an educator are:-

  • to ensure that every child, regardless of his/her socio-economic background, religious persuasion, ethnicity, sex and differing abilities, is equipped with the pre-requisite skills, attitudes and knowledge, to progress to a higher level.
  • to provide teachers with the competencies that will enhance their teaching skills through Staff Development Sessions and Workshop/Seminars.
  • to maintain a humble and professional relationship among my colleagues, subordinates and the entire public.

Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.
