Meghan Mcardle

In May 2013, Meghan graduated from Towson University Magna Cum Laude with a degree in elementary education. While at TU, Meghan played the saxophone in the university band, studied abroad in Costa Rica, and was an active member of the Students Helping Honduras (SHH) chapter leadership team. Through SHH Meghan volunteered regularly near El Progreso, Honduras, fostering her love for the country and deepening her motivation to teach: to empower young people and expand opportunities for them to enact positive change in the world. Since graduating from TU, Meghan has spent the last four years teaching 7th grade reading and language arts in Queen Anne’s County, Maryland. Over her summer break in 2015, Meghan volunteered with BECA’s summer camp program, and upon leaving, promised herself she would return as soon as she could. Outside of teaching and traveling, Meghan enjoys studying martial arts, serving as the “DJ” (playlist specialist) of her school’s dances, seeking out live music, and spending time on the Chesapeake Bay. Now, Meghan is thrilled at this opportunity to return to Honduras as a full-year volunteer teacher with BECA.
