Students Showcase Documentaries at WCE

Susan Catapano, chair of the Educational Leadership Department and director of international programs at the Watson College, and Dennis Kubasko, professor and CESTEM director, have led student field experiences to Belize for the past seven years. This spring, 26 students in their internship semester worked in schools in both North Carolina and Belize. After 10 weeks interning in N.C. schools, students took part in a five-week overseas experience that allowed them to compare and contrast schools in the two countries, immerse themselves in a different culture and develop a global perspective.
