About Me

I have been an elementary and secondary school teacher and administrator. Currently, I am a faculty member in the Faculty of Education at Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. My M.Ed. and Ph.D. had a focus on the educational and linguistic experiences of children who moved from other countries to Canada.

Safely arrived in Cap-Haitien

We had a great drive today from Pignon to Cap-Haitien! Although only 39 miles, it took us more than 2 hours to cover the distance. The roads were in pretty rough shape for much of the way. We'll try and post some pics later.

Tonight we met with Justin Metelus, the Director of the Ministry of National Education for the north of Haiti.  He is planning our time working with the university and the high school.  We then had dinner with Andre, he director of the Sacred Heart Centre in Cap.  We will be doing some work at their nutrition centre and pre-school.

We had a great time in Pignon and are now excited about what this week holds.

More to come!
