Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Immediately after my return to the US I worked for a number of War On Poverty Programs both in Chicago, IL and Vermont . I returned to live in Chicago, completed a Masters degree in Social Work at U of C, married and had two children. I'm currently working as a public school social worker in Chicago.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Looking back, they were two of the most significant years of my life. I learned to live independently and cooperatively, developed an appreciation and respect for previously unknown cultures, and learned more about myself than I could have ever imagined.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Just a hello to all those who participated in the Oberlin College Training Group of '64....they were an exceptionally challenging and motivated group of individuals.
