Patrick Faber, Minister of Education

“Biggest congratulations. I look forward to working with Mrs. Elena and while yes there are times we don’t see eye to eye, I don’t want to say that it is most of the times, but this is  how it is and I have always tried to carry myself in the office when I have to engage with the B.N.T.U. in a very professional manner and again, while we don’t always agree I give maximum respect to the Belize National Teachers Union and its newly re elected president Mrs. Elena.”


Smith took over the presidency in 2017.
