Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Worked in the poultry industry for 3 years as a supervisor and translator for Thai and Laotian employees. Went back to school and earned teaching certificate. I 've been teaching algebra, science and most recently agriscience in middle school. Two years ago I bought a farm, and hope to develop it into a full time job in the next 3 years.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was a great experience, but in retrospect, I was too immature to take full advantage of the situation.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I would enjoy hearing from anyone in Thai 90.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Share your experiences!! There are a whole lot of very naive people out there who have a very narrow view of people from other cultures.
