After working as the Upper Resource Teacher and Middle School Science Teacher at San Jeronimo Bilingual School (SJBS), Meagan Sherman has returned for another round with BECA’s oldest students as the Middle School English Teacher.
This is my second year in Cofradia with BECA! Last year I was the first grade teacher at SJBS and this year I am the second grade teacher. Most of my days start out the same, but don’t always end the way I planned since we live in Honduras and I spend most of my day with children!
I don’t think anyone really enjoys goodbyes. Especially not when the experience and the relationships had a large, or even a small, positive impact on our lives.

The Professional Pathways Program (PPP) began this year as a pilot program at SJBS to provide an opportunity for SJBS alumni to continue practicing their English skills.
Libros y Familia, literally meaning, books and family, is an event across schools that the BECA teachers put on for the entire school every year to promote literacy. That is a pretty large task if you think about it.
