For the past three years, I have been the "official" BEA photography for all of our milestones. For each and every one of these, I have failed miserably at trying to get a set of "formal" graduation photos of Shally, my NGO partner and our school's managing director, with the BEA kids. Since Shally had to smile and pose with sixty of the BEA kids who got certificates for all their hard work during the 2012-13 school year, it eventually got too exhausting and then chaos broke out...as usual. Indeed, I have hundreds of "nice" shots, but these are the ones that make me laugh out loud and really show that what we do is much more than just language education. Nobody ever believes that all of our students come from extreme and moderate poverty. It's amazing what just one year with BEA and "Teacher Shally" can do for these kids.
