Read our executive director's perspective after his latest trip to Honduras to check out each BECA school, meet with the parents, and fit in a baleada or two.
How did you find out about BECA?
I hope you had a great time following along with me throughout the day in 2nd grade! 2nd grade and SJBS is full of adventures and moments that make my heart smile. One of my favorite parts of the day is standing at the portón and greeting all of the students as they walk into to school.
Where have you traveled in Honduras? What was your favorite place?
“Tell me, I'll forget. Show me, I'll remember. Involve me, I'll understand,” is one of the most widely known quotes in the world of education.

Bilingual Education for Central America (BECA) Stands With Hondurans as they make their voices heard through nonviolent protest and demonstrate an inspiring faith in the power of democracy to deliver a better future for Honduras
For as long as I can remember, thanksgiving has always been a small, casual affair: me, my parents, my brothers, our dogs, a small turkey or maybe a roast chicken – once we even just ordered Chinese food.
What was the moment when you decided to stay for a second year with BECA?
As soon as I set foot in Honduras, I fell in love, and I’m sure that my decision to stay for a second year surprised none of my friends and family from home.
