II taught physical education in High School and English as a 2nd language to adults. I initiated, instructed and supervised the Physical Education programs in the16 inner city elementary schools. I initiated and expanded breakfast programs in the rural elementary schools. I initiated school gardens to enhance the lunch in all of the rural elementary schools. I initiated an alliance between the public medical clinic and the inner city elementary schools to provide physical examinations and other medical tests before the students took part in the physical education program. Also, I arranged for the students to receive dental care at the public clinic. It was a most fulfilling two years.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I taught Spanish at Central High School in Philadelphia for 30 years. I am now retired and substituting a few days a month at my former school & enjoying having time to pursue other interests.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
The two years that I spent as a PCV were the most enriching years of my life. Everyday was a learning experience. I will always be glad that I had the opportunity to serve as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Brazil.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I would love to hear from Nancy Meyers and anyone else who trained at Georgetown University, summer of 1965.
