Haiti Education Initiative Summer 2015

Last year ACE-Ireland sent three teachers: Jonathan Tiernan, Ellen Regan and Saorise Rooney to Haiti to develop an action plan for a future volunteer initiative.
 
On the back of their successful visit we are offering the opportunity for two Irish teachers to volunteer in Haiti from July 3rd to August 7th 2015.
 
The two Irish teachers will work closely with two recent American ACE graduates in delivering professional development modules to the teachers of Basile Moreau Primary and Secondary School in Port Au Prince, Haiti.
 
The content of the Professional Development modules will be teaching English as a foreign language, using technology in the classroom and areas of pedagogy like lesson planning and classroom management.
 
Practically the selected candidates should be prepared to pay for their travel to Haiti, but all in-country expenses will be covered by ACE-Ireland.
 
Additionally, those candidates selected should be prepared to engage in a weekend retreat with ACE-Ireland and pre-departure training before they depart for Haiti.
 
Finally, a competency in French would also be preferable amongst interested candidates.
 
If people would be interested in applying for this opportunity (application deadline is Friday, Feb. 13th) or have further questions please contact John O'Malley, jomalle3@nd.edu or 085-7073932.
