Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I participated in Teach For America in '98 teaching Pre-K & then 4th Grade in two of Houston's inner-city schools. Worked as an Associate Editor for the Colonial Latin American Historical Review at UNM in Albuquerque, NM for a few years. Life after that has been a lot less interesting & exciting... have lived in So. California over 5 yrs. now, but the economy here is hard to live with. I'm currently exploring another move...
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I miss experiencing new things, seeing far away places in the world, meeting interesting people (both locals & PCVs), and feeling genuinely excited in general.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Everyone! Specifically, Gabriela Gomez, Jennifer Crandall, Andy Rebold, Jill Hrubecky...
