Describe your typical weekend.
If you had told me a year ago I would be the BECA Amigos de Jesus Administrator, I probably would have laughed. I loved my work with BECA and loved my second home at Amigos de Jesus, but a year ago today I was still attempting to grapple with my responsibilities in my second grade classroom.
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.
The year I spent in Honduras was perhaps the most influential and life-altering experience I’ve had so far. At times the challenges I faced made me question my abilities and my impact. I underestimated the workload of being a successful, full-time 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!
Día Del Niño, or Children’s Day for you stateside gringos, is exactly what it sounds like: a holiday dedicated to the existence of children. This is a lovely demonstration of how strongly Honduran culture values family– and a great reason for a party at each of the BECA schools.
