It was less than four months ago that Port-au-Prince native Miquette Denie was working as a school nurse and part-time biology/anatomy teacher at a small school in Haiti's capital city.


In her free time, she was helping 170 Haitian students in grades 1-12 to stay in school and get an education, through the TeacHaiti non-profit organization that she had founded a couple of years earlier.
