Dekalb County Schools

Henri P. de Vastey


I am Henri P. de Vastey, one of three French teachers at our school. 
I arrived to Lakeside in August 1995 and have been here since. I am pleased to maintain contact with my former students and learn of their successes post-Lakeside. I have to think that all teachers, in some small ways, add to the future you are preparing your daughter and son.
In other roles,  I am a co-sponsor of the French Club and of the French Honor Society and the sponsor of the Mock Trial Academic Team. 


Tutorials are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Room 1609 between 3:20 PM-3:45 PM by appointment for I do not plan to be in my room if students are not coming.

Conference/phone calls:
Please feel free to contact me! You can leave a phone message by calling 678.874.6893. I am available for conferences after school from 3:30-4:00. You can also contact me via e-mail at [email protected] or [email protected] or at my home phone number 404.296.4999.

About Me

The academic year 2021-2022 marks my 26th year as a French teacher at Lakeside High School and my 65th year around the sun.


I am originally from Haiti, immigrated with my parents to Philadelphia, graduated from Penn State, and served 10 years as an officer of the United States Army where I had the honor of leading infantry soldiers and the thrill of leaping out of C-130’s.


My 4 daughters are proud and productive Lakeside graduates. My passions, aside from teaching French, are traveling with students and family, history, politics, and sailing a Catalina-26 on Lake Lanier. 


With science, community support, personal responsibility, and leadership, we can overcome la pandémie!
