Come join Professor Wynnie every Wednesday for a Kreyol language class at Lakou Café.
Wynnie Lamour is founder and Director of the Haitian Creole Language Institute of New York. She has spent the last several years teaching Haitian Creole in the New York City metro area to a wide array of language learners, including non-profit professionals, public school teachers, and entrepreneurs. Her experiences growing up bilingual and bicultural in Brooklyn as a Haitian-American have provided her with a unique perspective as an educator. She holds a BA in Linguistics from Cornell University and an MA in Urban Affairs from CUNY Queens College. Wynnie’s philosophy of teaching is rooted in the idea of “Mindfulness,” which promotes community and connectedness, while establishing a sense of pride and respect for both the Haitian language and culture.
