About the Author

Patrick Sylvain is a Haitian-American writer, essayist and poet, and instructor of Haitian language and culture at Brown University's Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies. He has been published in several anthologies, magazines and reviews, including African American Review, Agni, American Poetry Review, Callaloo, Crab Orchard Review, Haitian Times and Ploughshares. Jalene Tamerat is a leader in K-12 education whose work focuses on the preparation of teachers who are able to respond to the instructional and civic needs of diverse urban youth. She began her career in education in 2003 as a classroom teacher in the Boston Public Schools and has most recently served as the dean of a Boston-area residency and master's program for aspiring teachers. Marie Lily Cerat has worked in the K-16 New York public education system as a classroom teacher, a staff developer and a college teacher for over 20 years. Her work examines the effects of the exclusion of Haitian language and culture in the education of Haitian learners and has been published in Rethinking Schools, the Journal of Haitian Studies, and the International Journal of the Sociology of Language, among other publications.


"Education Across Borders is a powerful cri de coeur, appeal, study, and manifesto from three fervently passionate, highly empathetic, and experienced educators who are transforming K-12 education for BIPOC and first-generation students, particularly from Haiti and the Dominican Republic. . . . It is the kind of book that belongs in every classroom, as it could help safeguard young people's futures and even save their lives."
-Edwidge Danticat, author of Brother, I'm Dying

"A rallying cry recommended for all who care to connect their students to schools as sites of possibility."
-Carola Suarez-Orozco, cofounder, Re-Imagining Migration, and Distinguished Professor, University of Massachusetts, Boston

"A must-read for all educators interested in transforming anti-racist theory into everyday classroom practice."
-Peniel E. Joseph, author of The Sword and the Shield: The Revolutionary Lives of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.

"Education Across Borders fiercely advocates that teachers of Haitian, Dominican, and other students with immigrant backgrounds-whose language and cultural needs are largely neglected in classrooms-must do better. Sylvain, Tamerat, and Cerat's collective years of teaching and research, and depth of theoretical knowledge, provide important insight for ensuring both academic success and positive socio-emotional development for students learning English. This book is for all who are deeply committed to the success of language-minority students and are willing to passionately advocate for it. As such, it should serve as a resource for every educator who teaches these students."
-Audra M. Watson, director, WW Teaching Fellowship, Institute for Citizens & Scholars
