Work Description: Secondary Education
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I returned to Texas after twenty years in Sierra Leone, bringing my two
sons with me. I continued to teach at the secondary level for the following
twelve years. Currently, I am writing and giving presentations on my
experiences and my passion for African and Caribbean literature.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
The Peace Corps molded my character and transformed my life...my two
American-Sierra Leonean sons are the ultimate proof of that! I have
continued to be an unofficial 'Ambassador' for the Peace Corps to
countless Texas students--and teachers--since my return.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
