Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Education Program

Baqui, Teacher Eduation

Name: Baqui Thomas
Major: Elementary Education
Minor: History
Hometown: Conyers, Georgia
Fact: I found my love for history in high school thanks to my GA state history teacher, who literally made history come alive by making us act out how we believed events in history may have played out.

I chose to come to Belhaven University because... I felt like it was a place I could develop mentally and spiritually as well as for the small class size, which allows for great relationships with my professors.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven University... it's hard to just pick one because I really enjoy all of the relationships I have developed at Belhaven, but I have to say the most important one to me is my growing relationship with God which was made possible by the friends that I've met at Belhaven.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I will be respected as an educator in the teaching field. Also, I will be able to follow my passion and teach kids in inner city schools and give back for the many blessings that I've received.

One Word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Family
