By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belizean Harriet Scarborough and her American husband Tom have been coming to Belize to help teachers since 2007 and from the looks of it will continue their volunteer work for years to come.
Their work has been recognized by a featured article published by the Arizona Daily Star on September 23.
Harriet, 68, who is Garifuna and originally from Barranco met Tom, 75, a Vietnam veteran, in Arizona where she was earning a degree in Reading from the University of Arizona.
After retiring from the Tucson Unified School District in 2007, Harriet and Tom started a professional development collaboration with Belize High Schools through the offices of then-president of the Belize Association of Principals of Secondary Schools Salome Tillett, principal of St Catherine Academy.
The Scarboroughs, who are a pair of dynamic and progressive-minded educators, have left an imprint on Belizean educators having visited every corner of the country training principals and teachers.
The article collected comments from Tillett; Angel Leiva, principal of Bishop Martin High School in Orange Walk; and Dr. Jeremy Cayetano, former principal of Stann Creek Ecumenical College, now General Manager of Anglican Schools of Belize. They all speak wonders of the Scarboroughs’ methods of teaching which insist that all students can learn.
The Arizona Daily Star article said the Scarboroughs are getting ready for a 300-teacher workshop in January 2022, “to help more students succeed”.
But before that, they plan on delivering 400 teaching strategy books, which Harriet got donated by RBT, an education corporation she worked for, to Belizean educators in December.
