TESOL Teacher Trainer. I led English clubs, worked with ACET Ukraine to help them teach HIV/AIDS education classes in rural schools, hosted many American culture parties, and made very close friends with young English teachers in my city.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
After Peace Corps I got a job in Seoul teaching TESOL Certification courses.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I still feel very passionate about my host country. I've been back to visit, I connected Ukrainians with Peace Corps, I send packages to different volunteers. I can't get Ukraine out of my system!
