Teaching English in Haiti

Haiti is a country that has had its fair share of disasters – both natural and man-made – yet has managed to retain a certain charm and an undeniable natural beauty. Haiti is most certainly not the most comfortable of destinations, but it can be the most worthwhile.
Haiti offers visitors exactly what you would expect from a tropical island: sleepy little towns, relaxing beaches, busy markets and historic forts. This tropical nation has an abundance of fruit and speciality dishes incorporating unusual meats like goat. Seafood is also an obvious choice and let’s not forget the national drink: Haitian rum.
On the downside, Haiti is a poor country with high illiteracy and unemployment rates and it can be difficult to experience the poverty of the country. Haiti has had a turbulent history and environmental instability, which has resulted in devastation and destruction. It is not uncommon to experience flooding, earthquakes, droughts and hurricanes, with the most severe storms usually occurring in June to November. There are, of course, areas on the island which are more prosperous and often visitors won’t leave the relative safety and comfort of these areas.
The tourism industry is bouncing back slowly, though, to enjoy the mountainous beauty of the island and the wonderful beaches and the quaint towns. Haiti is sure to emerge again as a top tourist destination.

Teaching Opportunities

As a result of the numerous recent revolutions, crises and natural disasters, there are a lot of agencies working towards rebuilding the infrastructure of this small country. This includes education, and so teaching jobs can be found all over. While there are more opportunities in the capital of Port-Au-Prince, there are also vacancies to be found in Carrefour, Delmas and Petionville. There are very few paid positions in Haiti but these can be found in local or mission schools. Most opportunities are volunteer positions (you usually don’t need a degree for these) so you will only be paid a stipend but it is worth it to be a part of the community and experience the true nature of its people.

My advice to those who are thinking about teaching abroad is just go for it!
