Last year’s exchange program was a great success that this year, 17 students from the University of North Carolina arrived in La Isla Bonita in order to finalize their teaching certifications. Arriving from our sister city, Wilmington, North Carolina, USA, for the next few weeks, the students will be engaging with elementary and high school students on the island in order to acquire teaching skills needed to finalize their teaching certification.
Well received by both students and teachers, Professor Dennis Kubasko, who is accompanying the group, says that, “this is just the beginning of a great exchange program where both countries will benefit.”
The students are engaging in 15 weeks of training, ten were held in the USA while the other five will take place on Ambergris Caye. Training is taking place at San Pedro High School, Isla Bonita Elementary and Ambergris Caye Elementary School.
