After more than a decade with English in Action, Beatriz is now a proficient English speaker and has become a vibrant member of the community. When Janet & Beatriz began their partnership in 2015, Beatriz spoke in a soft voice that was difficult to hear. Now she is speaking with more confidence and has even spoken to large groups in English. Now a Match Advisor on English In Action’s staff, she also chairs English In Action’s student leadership group where her steady and calm guidance has been invaluable. Originally from El Salvador, Beatriz moved to the valley in 2006. Prior to her death in December 2021, Janet lived in Woody Creek for more than 50 years and tutored nine students during her tenure as a volunteer. We are forever grateful to Janet for her unrivaled spirit and years of dedicated service to her students.
