I would like to find a charitable organization that has the need for a teacher and/or a person committed to doing any task (from helping to build homes / schools for earthquake victims to working on sustainable agricultural projects) where knowledge of Haitian Creole would be an asset.

If coordination with other programs is necessary, I would enjoy helping with editing and translation as I have a background in these areas. My main ability is teaching (I have an MA in linguistics / Second language acquisition and ESL certification), so, of course, this is the area I would enjoy helping the most. I have experience with adolescents and young adults, but I have taught younger students.
