Throughout my past two years of teaching at Santa Mónica, in prepa and then in first grade, there have been so many of those moments when you are about to correct a kid for something they shouldn’t be doing, but they’re just too clever.
Flashback to my first day (ever) of teaching: it’s the end of a tough two hours in my English preschool class and we’re sitting in the auditorium waiting for busitos and mototaxis to come pick up the students.
Molly Cooksy was sitting in her friend’s living room when she first heard about BECA and decided to apply.
Greg Minogue graduated from the College of the Holy Cross in 2008. After graduation he began working as a Financial Adviser Associate at UBS Financial Services in New York City. About two months later the global financial markets collapsed, though a direct correlation between the two events has never been proven. In 2010 Greg left Wall Street for Yeongcheon, South Korea (to teach English), and from there Cofradia, Honduras, where he taught 5th Grade at SJBS from 2011-2012. Upon returning to NYC he continued to show his BECA pride by assisting in various fundraising and recruiting efforts throughout the area. Greg currently works at the alternative investment firm Apollo Global Management and resides in his native Queens, NY, where he can often be found sporting his prized collection of Honduras tank tops.
