Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was the most important factor in shaping my life direction--I
moved into the field of mathematics education and became
interested in African affairs. Both have remained central--my
marriage, my occupation, my interests remain in the direction
Peace Corps pointed me.
