Marie Smith, Methodist Primary School Teacher in Corozal Town, Belize
I soon realized that this young mother was intelligent, honest and caring and friendly! I became her English teacher for two years and noticed that she was determined to excel in all she did! On graduating from High School with honours she applied to CJC DAY DIVISION and was soon topping her class and showing that she was heading for the Dean's List for those who excel in their studies! Her graduation from Corozal Junior College with an Associate Degree was a memorable occasion! However she did not stop there!
She became a teacher at Methodist school and when I started the Teachers Education Programme even before we officially joined and received Belize's Educational Board's approval to do the Degree Programme for Primary School Teachers, she applied for and began studying for this Degree!
It was no wonder that by the time the programme got underway and was official, Marie has sank her brain and soul into her studies and graduated once again with honours when she completed her Associates Degree in Primary Education from CJC!
You would think she would stop there but she hadn't! Marie Smith is presently enrolled at CJC's Galen University Division where she is working towards her Master's Degree in Primary Eduction!
Hats off to Marie who over the year has become like a daughter to me and an outstanding young mother who is proving to us that determination is the key to success! Best Wishes to Ms Marie Smith for reaching for the sky and offering a piece of heaven to those young minds who are the future of Belize!
