[www.inewsguyana.com] – The United States (US) Embassy in Georgetown has welcomed Fulbright U.S. Scholar, Jennifer Hoyte to Guyana. According to a press release, Chargé d’Affaires, Bryan Hunt met with Ms. Hoyte on Wednesday, August 19, and expressed his appreciation to the Fulbright Program for the reactivation of the program in Guyana after a 20-year hiatus due to reduced staffing at the Embassy.

“The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program sends U.S. scholars and professionals abroad to lecture or conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields,” the release noted.

According to the release, Ms. Hoyte holds a Master of Science in Computer and Information Science from Ohio State University. She is currently pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematics Education at Florida International University.

As part of the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program, Ms. Hoyte will be teaching Philosophy and Issues in the Teaching of Mathematics at the University of Guyana for the first semester of the 2015-2016 academic year. The course will focus on how teachers can be more reflective and will cover topics such as Classroom Management, Pedagogy, and Enrichment activities for the secondary school mathematics classrooms.

The Fulbright Program was established in 1946 under legislation introduced by late Senator J. William Fulbright of Arkansas and is sponsored by the United States Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA).

  1. If the PPP had stop dancing chutney,they would still be raping Guyana ,,they now have to BUBBLE to the music,,,

  2. ”The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program sends U.S. scholars and professionals abroad to lecture or conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields,” And what other underhand activities would they be involved in?
    ”The Fulbright Program was established in 1946 under legislation introduced by late Senator J. William Fulbright” That is just at the beginning of the ”COLD WAR”
    Any assistance for the advancement in the academic and professional fields is always welcome but that comes with a price. It is well known that American Administrations from both sides use every method to further their own interests. One has to be suspicious because of past experiences not only in Guyana during the 60’s in particular but throughout Latin America. They use these proxies to do their dirty work all over the world. They recruit many locals to help to do their dirty work and now, especially since they have an administration which they were instrumental in getting them into power, they have a free hand to do as they please. The Granger administration has to dance to their tune.
