About the Book

A School for Others covers my time in Belize, Central America as a Peace Corps Volunteer. It is about my personal growth, some adventure, unintentional altruism, and finding true love, despite my best efforts not to. I live in a Mayan village and one day I discover an abandon school in the jungle. It is the beginning of a vision to develop a school for students who are unable to continue their education in a system that is designed to weed out the “academically challenged.” They are the “other” kids who don’t have the privilege of attending secondary school.
