Milaine Alexandre

Bio

As a lawyer and a graduate of the Ecole Normale Supérieure, Mme Alexandre studied gender and human rights at EQUITAS (Canada) and Strasbourg (France). She is currently a senior consultant for the Global Center for the Development of the Whole Child’s Haiti literacy and SEL programming in the South and Grande'Anse departments of Haiti.

Milaine is a strong advocate for mother tongue, hands-on learning and has mentored members of her community in problem solving techniques and technology in order to provide high-quality learning opportunities to students.  Her work has strengthened schools and communities throughout Haiti. She believes that a communicative language approach to teaching Creole will empower Haitian children to be active participants in their education. 

Before working for the GC-DWC, Milaine had a long career as a teacher at both the Institution Saint Louis de Gonzague and Vision Nouvelle. She has also been a consultant to the Provisional Electoral Council, a project manager for the relief effort in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, and a facilitator for Teachers Training Teachers (TTT).
