Dear Friends of Creative Teachers,
Thank you for all your support and donations. On April the 11th I returned to work with Grace Community School and Orphanage in Carries, Haiti. In addition, I had the opportunity to visit an orphanage in Port Au Prince and teach at an AME church school.
Your donations helped to provide over $ 600 dollars of school supplies, open a library , and sponsor an additional teacher to work with me. In addition, we ran a Saturday Program and fed 95 children. Students are still in need of sponsorship for the upcoming school year. Please consider recommitting to sponsoring a student or sign up to do so if you have not already committed.
Last October I observed that the 5 to 6 year old group of students could not concentrate or focus on their teacher. It was apparent that they had not been fed before coming to school. The parents were depending on the lunch that the school provided to sustain these children for the day. Research shows that children must receive some form of breakfast in order to learn in school. Because of your donations we were able to start a breakfast program that would pay for breakfast for a month. However, we were not able to sustain this program, due to lack of funds. We need continued support. $200 will feed these students for a month.
Three energetic teachers, Ms. Brounelle, Ms. Nadage and Ms. Nicole, enthusiastically took on the challenge to teach 3 multi-grade classrooms of students with varied abilities. It was a delight to see many of these students reading and doing math.
While in Haiti I continued teaching English (ESL) to the students and held a training session for the teachers on guided Reading Centers and Individualized Instruction. They had the opportunity to make games, flashcards and other manipulatives, using donated materials.
I hope that you can find it in your heart to continue supporting these needy students of Haiti.
I will be returning to Haiti in September of 2012 for the beginning of the new school year.
