My latest adventure was in Haiti, where I spent two months (summer 2012) learning about myself, another culture, and my own morals and values as an educator.
Trying to learn Creole.
The three lovely educators I shared much of my experience and knowledge with.
Soccer is a loved by all sport.
This is my palace. Unfinished of course.
A fancy tap tap.
This is all they have. A chalkboard and desks.
Process of making white paint.
I learned this technique during my internship. It’s mostly for k-1 students.
Jimmy drinking out of a coconut, and that is sugarcane in his left hand.
They drew a picture of their dream home.
Two years later and no reconstruction.
Your typical wall hanging work of art.
Checkers using available resources for checkers.
They tie up a pig and feed him until he fattens up, then they feast.
Dada and passion fruit. Passion fruit is my forbidden fruit, you can’t find any in my area.
We were dancing and Marquise happened to take the best photo.
I explained that if students could take their own attendance, they would save a lot of time.
They find pleasure in keeping a neat and creative dish display.
Another breath taking photo.
Trying to earn a living with their music. ❤
My foster family.
This is the school. We held our classes here.
The tap taps are stuffed with people.
They are playing a game here, I think jacks maybe.
Family of family.
For some students, it is the first time they have ever touched a computer.
This is their kitchen and storage area.
I love that these ants are working as a team.
Basic computer class.
I love this picture for many reasons.
I am in love with this photo. It speaks for itself.
