Wonder Woman Feature: Exemplary Educator Amaurie Hyde

Posted: Wednesday, March 20, 2024. 9:42 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Special Envoy for the development of families and children, Rossana Briceño features outstanding Belizean women and girls making a positive impact in Belize every week.

Today’s feature is on exemplary educator Amaurie Hyde nee Trujeque.

Amaurie was born and raised in Belize City by parents Jose and Elizabeth Trujeque, along with 11 siblings.

At the age of 19, she moved to Orange Walk Town, where she got married and had five sons, seven grandsons, and one granddaughter. 

After moving to Orange Walk Town, Amaurie started working as a teacher’s helper at St. Peter’s Anglican School in January 1987.

The principal at the time saw the enthusiasm and passion that she displayed for the students and later offered her a job as a permanent teacher in September 1987. 

“It was then I realized how much I love the teaching profession, so I continued my education and got certified in Level 1 and Level 2 in Teaching from the University of Belize and graduated in 2004. I went on to attend a reading conference in Atlanta, Georgia, in 2008 where I gained a world of knowledge to share with the students and teachers at St. Peter’s Anglican School. 

I later became the vice principal of St. Peter’s Anglican School from September 2007 to June 2012. I worked there for 27 years until my early retirement in 2014 due to her chronic medical condition. During this time I was able to develop new curriculums and coordinated a countrywide reading workshop for all Anglican Primary Schools across Belize. I wanted to ensure that all children struggling with reading had the opportunity to gain the necessary skills to become fluent readers,” Amaurie explained.

Amaurie also served as a Justice of the Peace from 1997 to 2022.

Today, she enjoys her retirement with her husband, children, and grandchildren.

“I enjoy socializing with family and friends and helping in any way I can, whether it be a listening ear, giving advice, or supporting a worthy cause. I always saw myself as a person who wanted to give back to my community by helping others to make this world a better place,” Amaurie expressed.
