Words from an English teacher

Here is one of our teachers has said about the program

Meaghan Bergman

Michigan, USA - English teacher 2015

"If I hadn’t become involved with Barrio Planta Project, I would not have been as immersed in the community and culture of San Juan del Sur as I am now. Teaching English here has allowed me to meet so many families in the community and the students are so open and welcoming to me as a teacher. They’re growing and learning every single second of every single day and they couldn’t be happier to do so. Everyday this place becomes more of a home - not just San Juan del Sur itself, but BPP. It becomes a part of me and I just can’t imagine losing that."
