Dr. Alice Prophete

Dr. Alice Prophète, also known as Mme Prophète, is a passionate educator with an extensive history of dedication to continuous improvement in teaching and learning within local, provincial, national, and international contexts. A long-time educator for the Parkland School Division, she currently teaches Grade 9 at École Broxton Park School and has also worked at the elementary school level and previously taught math and science in Jr. High. In the past, she served as a lead teacher and Collaborative Teaching Partner in three Parkland schools including EBPS, Meridian High and Brookwood. In line with her commitment to advancements in teaching and learning, she provides training sessions in math education for K-9 teachers at the district level. She has also collaborated at the Division level in creating concept- and inquiry-based lesson plans for school-wide use, assisted with the use of Mathematics Diagnostic Assessment to inform learning, and assisted with the numeracy and literacy framework. She is very involved in pre-service teacher training, especially as a professor of primary and secondary math education since 2017. She is a member of the Curriculum Expert Group in the redesign of the concept-based Alberta curriculum. 

Dr. Alice Prophète was born in Haiti in the Caribbean. At the age of 16, she began her University studies and obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Physics Education, a Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences and Theology, and a Master’s degree in Mathematics. Thereafter, she worked as a math teacher, taught high school, trained mathematics teachers at the State University of Haiti, and trained deacons in theological institutions. In July 2002, she immigrated to Canada with her husband and three sons. Due to most of her education, credentials, and professional experience going unrecognized, Alice returned to university and subsequently earned an After-Degree in Secondary education, a second Master's degree in Math Education, and a Doctorate in Education. She defended her doctoral dissertation in 2020 and her research focused on the identity construction and professional integration of immigrant teachers in the Canadian educational context.


Over the past 10 years, Alice has presented at numerous academic and professional conferences and workshops on mathematical communication and has been consulted by several school boards in Alberta. Most recently, she presented at the Canadian Center of Science and Education (CCSE) conference as part of the Federation of the Humanities and Social Sciences Congress. Her presentation shed light on ordinary discrimination and the integration of visible minority teachers, particularly Black teachers, in the Canadian educational context.  Dr Prophète is scheduled to speak at several upcoming conferences such as at the University of Regina and an annual academic conference in Bruxelles next summer. She has also been invited to speak at several community-based organizations in Alberta. In collaboration with the Association des Collèges et Universités de la Francophonie Canadienne (ACUFC), Dr. Prophète is currently co-directing a research project on shortages and retention of teachers in Francophone minority and French immersion settings in Canada. Despite the majority of her time being devoted to teaching, studying, and presenting, she submitted three articles for publication in the past year and prepared a book chapter on French immersion and Canadian multiculturalism. 

In addition to her teaching roles, Alice has been involved in several non-governmental organizations and advisory boards focused on transformative education and the involvement of endogenous human resources for the sustainable development of Black nations. Over the years, she has been invited to facilitate numerous workshops across Central and North America, in Europe and in Africa on capacity-building and the development of Black nations. Involved in civic life, she co-founded the Haitian organization of Edmonton in 2010, a community organization committed to supporting the settlement and integration of Haitian newcomers in Alberta.
