Emily Nicaise (SJBS 2nd Grade) is excited to join SJBS for her second year with BECA. She will be teaching the same students as last year and is very happy to spend every day with her 25 best friends.
Emily was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. She attended Boston University and graduated in 2013 with degrees in Sociology and Spanish. Throughout high school and college, Emily frequented visiting Honduras with the organizations Students Helping Honduras and El Hogar de Amor y Esperanza. Since graduating, Emily worked for a nonprofit focused on helping youth of all ages with behavioral, emotional, and social issues in Boston.
Emily is passionate about empowering youth through education, social justice, and working with children. Last year, she loved spending time with her students' families outside of school, and traveling throughout Central America. She looks forward to developing even stronger relationships with her students, their families and the community around them in Cofradia.
