I taught art for 30 years before retiring. Since then I've worked at various full & part-time positions. I also write and create graphic art work.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Being a PCV allowed me to see the world from a different point of view. It increased my admiration of other peoples and cultures. It helped me appreciate my own opportunities. Despite my later successes as a teacher, artist & writer, being a PCV was the best thing I have ever done.
