Retired Florida teacher rebuilds school in Haiti
** ADVANCE FOR USE MONDAY, AUG. 30, 2010 AND THEREAFTER ** In this photo taken Aug. 25, 2010, a boy reads a book on a bench at the Christian Light Ministries school in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. In the seven months since the earthquake, the 62-year-old Sherrie Fausey from Jacksonville, Fla., has constructed a new school building for her 200 students. She's also tripled the salaries for her 22 teachers, and will begin classes on Sept. 30, 2010. While Haiti waits for a $5 billion plan to overhaul schools, people like Fausey are improvising so kids can attend class. (AP Photo/Arnulfo Franco)
