How We Came To Be

Teach With Jamaica was founded in 2006 by a teacher, Karla Hughes-Cass,  who had also served as a summer missionary to Montego Bay, Jamaica. Through daily interaction with area teachers and children she saw a need for additional educational support. Through discussions with the leadership of Jamaica Link Ministries (JLM) a partnership was formed to support Jamaican teachers by holding an annual educational conference. With the tremendous help of fellow Texas teachers who share the vision of supporting Jamaican educators, Teach With Jamaica was formed and later became known as Teaching With Jamaica.
