Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I moved to Juneau, Alaska in 1972 and married
Partlow in 1974. We had daughter Erika in 1976 and
daughter Hilary in
1979. We divorced in 1980. I remained in Juneau until
2000. I am now
semi-retired and living in Oregon. I am the grandmother
of five pre-school
children. I have a Masters Degree in Adult Education
and many years of
experience in education and would like to work at least
five more years. I
have enjoyed some international travel and would like
to combine travel
with work in the future.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps
My three years in the Peace Corps were exciting,
interesting, and rich.
I've never had a more valuable experience and am
grateful for all that I
learned. At the time I didn't realize that the PCV's
were the cream of the
crop of the country's youth.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I'd like to hear from anyone who was in Jamaica group
10 or 11 that might
