As some of you may already know, I am from Trinidad and Tobago… (Where’s that? North-east from Venezuela, at the base of the Lesser Antilles archipelago. It’s two islands but one country). Well, this just so happens to be a big year for us. On August 31st, we celebrated our 50th year of Independence – Our Golden Anniversary. This inspired me to have patriotic theme in my classroom. I want everything to be red, white and black – our national colors.
