Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Jan Mazer can be contacted at justjan11ajunodcom
Country of Service: Uganda
Training Group: PETT
Cities you served in: Ndejje
Arrival Year: 1994
Departure Year: 1996
Work Description: Primary Education Teacher Trainer
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I have continued teaching ESOL (English for speakers of other
languages)in elementary schools in Florida. I am in the process of
completing my National Board Certification for Teachers and am planning
on going to Costa Rica or Mexico for a month this summer for Spanish
language immersion. I am looking into possibly going to a CPH school,
which the Peace Corps used in Africa during my training. This way I may be
able to volunteer half a day and attend classes the other half day.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
The best memories of my life and some of the best people. Still hard to
accept many parts of the "American Way" after six years since my return.
Too many choices!
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I'd love to hear from anyone who was in our group especially during 94-96.
How about a reunion in Florida? We have much to offer!
Any message for returned volunteers?:
I realize more and more each day how blessed we are. Don't take your life
and health for granted! As opposed to what some people think, we did
make an impact on our world through our Peace Corps experience and it
definately made an impact on us!
