I am an international student from the beautiful town of Dangriga, Stann Creek District, Belize, located on the eastern coast of Central America. As a former British Colony, Belize is the only English-speaking country in that region.

This past spring, I started a Wheelock master’s degree program in Care and Early Childhood Education as a Beginning Practitioner.  I am a Teaching Principal by profession at Sittee River Methodist School, located approximately 25 miles from Dangriga Town. I am currently on study leave for one year, after which I plan to return home.

I came to Wheelock last year as an international visiting scholar and fell in love with it. The community was so welcoming and appreciative. This gave me a vision of what can be possible back home and I knew that I had to return to make my dreams into reality by pursuing my studies. So, in less than a year, I am back to accomplish my goals.

There is a great demand in the field of Early Childhood Education in my country. Wheelock College is the right place to be if you are interested in improving the lives of families and children. Wheelock provides a comprehensive program, which gives you the tools to make a difference in this world. The professors are well-prepared and knowledgeable in their respective fields. I am truly embracing this wonderful opportunity, while gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience. I am sure that I made the right decision by coming to Wheelock.
