I taught English at Jeju University in Jeju City in 1974 and then at Kyunghee University in Seoul in 1975. I stayed on teaching English at the Language Teaching Research Center and at the Foreign Language Institute at Yonsei. I left Korea for good in August 1977.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
After my Peace Corps stint, I worked in Iran, and then in the US teaching ESL. In 1980 I married a Swede (now deceased) and moved to Sweden, where I now live on an island off the west coast, north of Gothenburg. At present I teach English online, which I enjoy quite a bit. When I get the chance I like to spend a week or two in Greece. I have two daughters, both of which are grown.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I loved my experience in Korea. What else can I say?
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I would like to hear from anyone I knew back in Korea, but especially from my friends in K-30.
