2015-2016 Class Photos and Teacher Intros!

The Kindergarten

Taking pictures of the kindergarten classes is always…well, a fun challenge.  For Kindergarten 1, you can pretty much just forget about trying to get all the kids to look and smile at the same time.

Kindergarten 1


01 Kin 1

Kindergarten 1 Teacher: Marquise Merissé

Marquise was one of Lemuel’s kids when Lemuel was working in Port-au-Prince.  Now she is married and has a son (in Kindergarten 2).   This is her first year teaching on the Plateau.

Kindergarten Assistant: Nadege Louisjuste

With so many little ones, it helps to have an extra pair of hands!  Nadege returns for her second year as the assistant to all the kindergarten classes.

Kindergarten 2

The challenge with Kindergarten 2 was getting them all to fit in the photograph area!  (…and then to look and smile at the same time.)

Kindergarten 2 Teacher: Génièse Pierre

We are happy to have Génièse back for her second year of teaching in Lemuel’s kindergarten.  Génièse is from the nearby area of Sources Chaudes.  This year, she has made the move from Kindergarten 1 to Kindergarten 2 with her students from last year.

First Grade Teacher: Rachelle Joseph

Like Marquise, Rachelle may be a new face to some of you, but she is well-known to us.  Rachelle was also part of Lemuel’s ministry when it was in Port-au-Prince.  Although she has made many visits to the Plateau in past years, this is her first time teaching in the school.  (And she just was named “Teacher of the Month” for September!)

Second Grade Teacher: Kenol Junior Aristilde

Kenol is from Port-au-Prince, and this is his first year teaching on the Plateau.  He decided to get into teaching so that he could be part of the solution to some of the flaws in the Haitian school system.
