Guam - What a way to start summer for teachers. It was last week that Governor Eddie Calvo in a letter thanking Department of Education teachers for their performance this past school year announced that the money for the retroactive pay had been sent to DOE. Teachers like FBLG's Patricia Anub are excited to be receiving money owed to them, saying, "The retro pay is a great thing I think it will encourage teachers to do even more great things for our schools and for our students."

And clerk typist Alicia Fullo added, "Actually it was an exciting feeling it's been a long time waiting and I am really happy that the government the governor and the superintendent pulled through with giving us what was owed to us."

Over $2 million was released and according to superintendent Jon Fernandez the checks are available for pickup.
