Other Countries you served in, Training Group Name Arrival Year, Departure Year, Work Description:
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Stayed in Russia and volunteered for CDC (Citizens for Democracy Corps)for two years and then one year in Odessa, Ukraine. Went to Taiwan and worked in the education field for three years. Currently, working in Shanghai, China in education.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Despite much frustrations internally (within the Peace Corps in Russia) and externally (the working environment and the alledged clients), the experience is invaluable.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I maintain contact with some members of our group and now I would like curreent volunteers or RPCV's who would like to teach ESL in China to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Other English-speaking countries such as UK and Australia are actively promoting the English language and their cultures to the world, why not the United States of America? I believe RPCV's can help us who are still "in the field" to stir the conscience of legislators to promote our culture to the rest of the world. I find it very frustrating that there is no cultural attaches here in China with whom I can discuss about education and cultural exchanges between the US and China (whose people thirst for the English language as the international language for communication)! Any RPCV out there who can help? Write me.
