Amir is a traveler at heart with a burning desire to cause a real impact on the way his home country is developing. He strongly believes that proper education is the best long-term solution to poverty, violence, and other social issues. He has spent a lot of time exploring Honduras, embracing and getting to know more of his own culture. Throughout his trips and adventures he has learned to always see the best in people and how great they can be. Most importantly, Amir knows that if everybody is given the opportunity to access quality bilingual education, it can lead to a very positive change in our society. He’s very excited and grateful for the chance to volunteer with BECA at Santa Monica Bilingual School. As the 3rd and 4th grade teacher he hopes to motivate and inspire the kids like he was many years ago. Encouraging leadership, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, creativity, curiosity, and problem solving skills are some of his main goals for this 2018-2019 school year.
