Training teachers in Haiti
Graduating class of 2014 in the CENTRE MONTESSORI D'HAITI: Graduates of our reopened Montessori teacher-training center in Liancourt; Haiti celebrated their achievement with family and friends on Saturday 2 August, 2014.
"We expect that these new teachers will provide quality education to approximately 400 children in the coming school year. It was an emotional moment at the end, when the graduates had to say goodbye to each other. After one year of living at the Montessori centre they will now return to their respective towns and villages, some to work in existing schools, some to start new Montessori classes."--Fondation-Peter-Hesse, Haiti
We at Spiritual Book Club have been fans of the work of the Peter Hesse Foundation in Haiti for years, and some of us got to travel to Liancourt, and Leogane in 2011 to see firsthand the work of this foundation on the ground in Haiti, training over 1,000 teachers and training Haitian educators to teach children all over Haiti.
