The Joseph School is dedicated to cultivating the next generation of leaders for Haiti, but we wouldn’t be able to do it without our incredible teachers. During this Teacher Appreciation Month, we want to highlight some of the incredible people who help make TJS a special place.
Some of our teachers travel long distances to be a part of the TJS family. Our principal, Rose, commutes from Port-au-Prince, almost an hour away each day. The guest house on campus is always open for some of our teachers to stay in during the week to avoid long commutes, such as Frantz who travels almost three hours from Cap-Haitian.
Not only are our teachers dedicated to TJS, but we are blessed to have some of the best teachers in the country! Carlos has been an integral part of the TJS team for several years and is up for P4H’s National Teacher Award! In addition, Gracia was also nominated for the national teacher award. [should we add more details on P4H here or in the footer of the blog]
Our teachers are always looking for ways to help their students and be the best they can be. Edrice is the leader of several online groups with teachers across Haiti and the U.S. In these groups he facilitates discussions on best practices and shares articles that benefit teachers far and wide.
The summer is a busy time for our teachers; the entire team attends conferences and seminars to brush up on old skills and learn new ones. Also during the summer, Estagonia volunteers to tutor students who need extra help moving into the next grade level.
We are so blessed to have every one of our 23 teachers. From visiting student homes for check-ins, to working in teams of two for each grade level, we truly have the best group of teachers there is! Our donors are a key part of helping us keep quality teachers and a strong educational team. If you would like to sponsor a teacher or donate to TJS please click here.
