1972: Marilyn served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Sierra Leone in Kambia beginning in 1972
Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Marilyn can be contacted at hamgataayahoodcom
Country of Service: Sierra Leone
Training Group: '72 -'74
Cities you served in: Kambia
Arrival Year: 1972
Departure Year: 1974
I taught 'maths' to primary school children in the Kambia Primary School. I, also, taught the math part of workshops that 2 other PCVs -Art and Sharon -and I did for primary school teachers in the Kambia District. Then we did follow-up workshops in villages.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I lived and taught in Iran and then I lived and taught in Mexico for years. Now I teach bilingual kindergarten in Wilmington, Delaware. I have a son and a daughter both in their 20's.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I look back on my PC days as if they were yesterday. I have nothing but the best recollections of my time in the PC in Salone. I would recommend the PC for anyone.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
I would love to hear again from Art Galus or Sharon or my housemate Karen Benjamin-we lost touch. I would love to hear from Percy Brown, my boyfriend from those days. We lost touch after connecting.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
I hope they enjoyed their service as much as I did. I hope you all go on to do great things for yourselves and others.
