The Haitian-born educational leader has been a staunch supporter of children at risk for the duration of her distinguished career as teacher and administrator in the Miami-Dade County Public Schools district.  Charles, who was educated in Germany and France, holds a dual bachelor’s degree from the Sorbonne and the University of Illinois-Chicago. Her master’s degree is also from the University of Illinois-Chicago. 

Locally, she attended NSU’s Abraham S. Fischler School of Education for certification in educational leadership.
