Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:

Was a teacher and administrator for 10 years in government-sponsored programs (Jobs Corps centers and a New York street academy), then for four more was a care giver in a child development center and teenage group home.

It was a truly wonderful experience; I learned more than I ever taught and would not trade those years for anything. I still feel for Nigeria and wish its people the very best always.

No one person in particular, but I do intend to participate in a reunion event within the next year.
