I had the best time of my life during SJBS years as a student. Now, as an adult, I realized that BECA is a loving and warm, heart beating sun upon us. My past teachers were exactly what I needed in my life back then! As a kid who wanted to be a singer and an actress, they supported me and helped me grow. I specifically remember when Mr Fabrizio taught us how to dance salsa, merengue and bachata in music class! I was so fortunate to have them as teachers. If I could talk to them today, I’d say, “Thank you, thank you teachers!” I just hope to give back what was given to me.

I’ve been with BECA as a teacher for four months now, and though classroom management has been a challenge for me, I absolutely love when the students tell me they love me! My students teach me more about life and help me see things through their eyes. Going into this year, I learned about the growth mindset, and I hope to practice a growth mindset every day. This also inspired me to set the goal to support my students so we get to a point where they are speaking to me only in English by the end of the year.

Thank you BECA! I’m excited to be here!
