Blind Student at Isla Bonita on Ambergris Caye learns braille

A young girl, Dayanara, who has been attending Isla Bonita School for the past 3 years has been managing with difficulty to keep up with the syllabus. The University of North Carolina Wilmington who brings student teachers every year brought one teacher, Elizabeth Budd, who taught Dayanara Braille during her three week experience.

Elizabeth said of her pupil. “She is absolutely brilliant and has so much untapped potential. I have never seen a student pick up and enjoy a subject at such a quick pace.” The student is now delighted that she can now follow a life long dream of reading books for pleasure as well as knowledge.

The Ambergris Daily congratulates professors Dennis Kubasko and Susan Catapano for spear heading this initiative and look forward to them bringing back new potential students next year. Congratulations to all who took part in this endeavor.
