Miguel Ortega is a Social Studies and Spanish teacher living in Aurora, Colorado. He currently teaches Spanish at Grandview High School. Miguel connected to JustHope on an education partner trip in October 2015 and has not been able to stay away from Nicaragua or Chacraseca since. He worked in Chacraseca for the summers of 2016 and 2017, supporting the Education Program in a variety of capacities, as well as supporting JustHope with various multimedia projects.
“My favorite part of working with JustHope and Chacraseca is the relationships formed. So many Nicaraguans have been so gracious and kind to me; I cherish the lasting bonds formed.” Miguel hopes to advocate for and support the continuation and growth of the Education Programs in Chacraseca through JustHope.
