Thank you, Teachers

Blog Archives:

Today is World Teachers Day. If you're a teacher, from all of us parents, grandparents, and citizens of the past, present and future - we thank you. 

What you do in the classroom is instrumental in shaping the hearts and minds of future generations. Thank you for making our world better, each and every day. 

Here's an inspirational story of one teacher we admire:

It is Friday late morning. A teacher, Magalie, stands in front of a class of youngsters, reciting French sentences. Ecol Mixte Baptiste, Magalie's school, is based at the border of the town of Jacmel in the south east of Haiti. A cobblestone path leads to the shady compound where temporary tents are mixed with brand new school buildings.

“I have been a teacher since 1998,” says Magalie. “I love children and that’s why I chose to teach”.

“Being a Christian helps when teaching at a Christian school." she says. "However, it can be still difficult to integrate values (God’s word) in non-religious subjects as mathematics or French,” Magalie says.

Magalie has received training through CRECH, EduDeo's partner in Haiti. Since that training, she has found new opportunities to use every subject as a way of pointing to God, the creator. 

“The trainings of CRECH helped me a lot. Children understand now easier the values. Also, the presentation of the books is very appealing. Each lesson has a clear format: title, objective, value and verse. Children know what to expect. The lessons just flow.”

For Magalie, teaching is more than just a job. It's a calling... an opportunity to shape the hearts and minds of the next generation. And as her children raise their hands and shout out answers, she loves every minute of it.
