Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I returned to Idaho and began teaching on a male, teen, sex-offender unit. I have continued to make trips back to Lucky Strike and there is a scholarship in my name at the village high school! Numerous Belizeans have been to Idaho to viist me. I share slides and stories with classes here in the states and the kids love it and so do I.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
The best (emotional) growing years of my life. I made life time friends in Peace Corps and the village. It prepared me for any job I could ever want!
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Keep in touch with the RPCV's and the people in your village and share your experience with freinds and family. A family friend was only 13 when he went to visit me in Belize and he recently completed two years as a PCV in El Salvador. Definately check out FISHTRAP in Enterprise, OR. to write about your experiences.

Did you work with Jeff Workman in Belize. He was also a teacher. I have been searching for him for a couple of years and wonder if you are still in touch with him? I was his best friend in Salt Lake City - Jackie. If you are in touch with him could you please give him my phone number and tell him to call me - (435) 882-2088. Thanks so much. If I remember correctly you were friends with John up at Yellowstone?
Thank for your time
