Eighteen students who are part of the International Studies Program at Watson School of Education - University of North Carolina Wilmington, are in San Pedro for five weeks to complete their Student Teaching Requirement here on La Isla Bonita.

The students will be doing their internship and volunteering their services at three schools, San Pedro R.C. School, Isla Bonita Elementary School and San Pedro High School. The leaders of the group are Dr. Dennis Kubasko and Dr. Susan Catapano.

This international field experience is to provide teacher candidates with the opportunity to teach lessons at different schools, thereby giving students an opportunity to instruct Belizean children, merging US teaching methodologies with Belizean strategies.
