Arrival Year: 1988

Work Description: Education

Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:

Left early, but always with strong feelings of support for Peace Corps. Have
participated in Speakers Corps at schools and represented Peace Corps at
one or two DC metro area job fairs. I now live in Maryland, am married with
a daughter of 3 1/2, and work as a housing policy analyst for a non-profit
association in the District of Columbia.

Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:

Excellent experience, but wish I had been better equipped to teach. An
English degree with emphasis on literature did not really prepare me to
teach. Now I do training seminars regularly - who'd have guessed. One day,
I hope I will be able to return to the field as a volunteer (professional short
term or retiree).

Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:

In Country training team or national advisors who may have been there
during my orientation, and Freeman Barnes, from the USA selection team
when we retreated to WV. Teachers from the 1986/87 crew at Lobatse
Junior Secondary or the SEcondary School in Otse.

Any message for returned volunteers?:

If anyone comes into DC for a Peace Corps celebration/event, my house is

I live in Bots and was a friend of a peace corp volunteer named Ann Jenkins who taught at Kagiso sec school in Ramotswa. I really would like to contact her. She had a friend at Moeding in Otse named Maryann. Ring any bells?
