Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Tracey Lin (Moore) Edou can be contacted at traceylinedouaverizondnet

Country of Service: Gabon

Cities you served in: Mitzic

Arrival Year: 1993

Departure Year: 1996

Work Description:

math teacher, though I ended up teaching TEFL too.

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

After Peace Corps, I stayed in Gabon for another 7 years, teaching in different schools. I did my master's in education in South Africa in the summers, and I moved back to the US this last August to teach junior high math here. I had a daughter Tisha in 1997.

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

I think that Peace Corps was great, but I learned more about the country by staying there even longer.

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

Mike Fields

Any message for returned volunteers?:

I'm afraid that I am deep in the midst of reverse culture shock, after 10 years there. I don't think that I have much to say except "aaauuuggghhh".

Hi Mrs Edou!
Quelles surprise!!!!C'est Sani;l'un des eleves que vous avez profondement marque au Gabon.J'etais au CESP;mais nous communiquions beaucoup car j'etais epris de la langue anglaise.
Que devient Mr Steve Metz!Ca fait longtemps que je n'ai pas eu de ses nouvelles.J'ai puis contacter Mrs Silva il y a quelques annes mais n'ai plus de ses news.J'ai aussi appris que Vicky est en Californie.
En tout cas,je tiens a vous remercier pour ce que vous aviez fait pour nous.
I don't think we'll EVER be able to pay you guys back for your sacrifice...
Today,many of your former students have finished school and have jobs.Some have wives and babies.Quant a moi,I am in school in Florida and will raise a family soon.
Anyway,I just want to say thank you to all the men and women who have chosen to serve their country helping others.That's the REAL FRONT LINE. Thanks PEACE CORPS!!!
