A Day in the Life of Miss Taylor

Teaching two grades ensures that my days are always different. These students have so much energy and life in them that it makes each day an adventure. Each day I go to school exhausted and wishing I was in my bed still and then I hear the first little voice yell, “MISS TAYLOR,” as they come running at me and I’m so happy to be at school.

Christmas in Honduras

Growing up in Nebraska, the Christmas season is always cold….very cold! So, in Honduras, I usually forget that it is even December, let alone Christmastime. Yesterday it was 89 degrees—not very wintery! However, the families that we work with go above and beyond to make us feel loved during this season (and always).

Thanksgiving at Amigos de Jesus

I have always enjoyed Thanksgiving as a day dedicated to gathering with family and friends and eating massive amounts of amazing food. Each year I value more and more the opportunity to come together and celebrate one another as well as the effort it takes from all parties to make this day a priority.

A Day in the Life of Mr. Joe

After spending two years in the classroom, I decided to fill a different role for my third year with BECA. As the Santa Monica administrator, I take care of a lot of the behind-the-scenes work that needs to get done so that teachers can focus on teaching their students, and not have to worry about what’s going on outside their classrooms.

15 Years

I looked at the calendar a few weeks ago and realized that exactly 15 years ago, the work of birthing BECA began in earnest. I arrived in Cofradia on September 1, 2001. By September 2nd, I was working alongside community members as we began laying bloques on the cement slab that was the only sign of a soon-to-be school.
