Today, I find myself in Belize, a small country nestled on the eastern shores of Central America. As soon as the airplane passed the Florida Keys and Cuba, I felt something in my heart that at this time I can't fully express in words. Even the sign greeting us at the airplane landing area on the island of San Pedro said, "Welcome Home."
It's not that I necessarily feel an ancestral connection to Belize or its people, but its something special in being surrounded in a sea of brown.
I welcome this experience to learn more about the culture of Belize and to do my part in sharing my love of education with our partners in education.
