Although Belizean born, I grew up in Jamaica and, at age 22, I immigrated to Canada with my husband and children.  When my children were all in school, I started my career in Special Education.  After attending college, I worked in elementary schools for 15 years and then in high schools for 8 years.  I taught students with many different disabilities but spent my last 8 years in Canada extensively working with teenage students on the Autism Spectrum.

In 2010 I returned to live in Belize. I recognized that Special Education teachers were desperately needed in Belize. I was offered a job at Horizon Academy which I immediately accepted.  After applying for, and receiving, my Teacher’s License, I have happily settled in to life in Belize. Go Horizon!
