Maestra Margarita

Margaret Jane started her third English class today at the Centro Arte para la Paz - with that addition, she's now teaching on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Each class has three students, young people who need English as teachers, as guides for tourists, and for future work in the University. These have to be the luckiest English students in Central America: with donations from family and friends, Margaret Jane purchased Rosetta Stone programs, workbooks, and games for English learners, and she is always on the lookout for good materials for the classes. Each class includes individual one-on-one conversation with the maestra, computer study, reading aloud, language games and group conversations.

In this photo, Margaret Jane with her two newest students, Sulma and Rosa, both from the Marianella Garcia colonia of Suchitoto. Margaret Jane worked with their parents at the Calle Real Refuge; now she's bringing new energy and hope en ingl├ęs to the lives of the daughters.

  1. Susan,
    Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful pictures with Margaret Jane and her English students.I was delighted to see them and to read about the ongoing life giving energy being created through Margaret Jane's project.I often recall my pilgrimage to El Salvadore guided by both Margaret Jane and yourself.A wonderful spiritual experience!
    Blessings of Peace,
