Other Countries you served in, Training Group Name Arrival Year, Departure Year, Work Description:
Grenada, 1987 to 1989; teacher & computer programmer in St. George's
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I worked as and engineer in aerospace for a few years, then went into teaching for several years after getting my credentials. I'm now a math tutor, and love it. I have a teenage daughter and live in southern California (Temecula).
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Kenya and Grenada were both interesting. In Kenya we were like local celebrities, while in Grenada, there were still some hurt feelings about the intervention. I learned a lot from both countries. Loved traveling around, roughing it, staying in affordable hotels, seeing interesting new insects, tasting local food & drinks, and meeting great people. I've shown hundreds of kids my slides and souvenirs from Kenya, and it's always a hit.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Some of the nicest, most supportive friends were Jody Muniz & Dan Rosenberg. I'd probably enjoy hearing from anyone. We've all grown up since then.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
I have a lot of good memories of people, but sadly I'm lucky if I can remember first names, much less last names.
