Education gives one the ability to excel in all arenas, regardless of whether doors are opened or closed. “I was provided a unique opportunity to achieve successes because my immigrant parents explored all the resources in our strained neighborhoods to learn a trade. Their achievements, in spite of racial, language and economic barriers propelled me to prosper academically and athletically.’
My name is Alphonse Prophète and I am a proud native of the City of Orange Township. My experiences growing up in this community are special and I am committed to be the personal, academic and athletic achievement of those I serve from the elementary level through the professional ranks. For more than 30 plus years, I have provided high-quality instructional delivery in French to students at secondary and post-secondary levels and still continue to remain enthusiastic and devoted to the socio-academic growth and development of all students – I have the opportunity to serve- in the Orange School District. With a high degree of fluency in English, French and Haitian Créole,
As a student-athlete at Seton Hall University, I fell more in love with the art of communication and language. I earned a bachelor’s degree in World Language & Education and advanced degrees in both Bilingual – Bicultural Studies and ESL, holding secondary education certification in French and ESL.
Being a teacher in the City of Orange Township is very personal to me. I grew up playing tennis, soccer, basketball and football right across the street from where I teach. Giving back to the community that gave me so much more is a blessing.
I love my city and I am honored that I have had the opportunity to pay it forward.
