Beautiful way to end the first phase of my language learning …

Today was the last day with the generous souls that have shared their language and country with us for the last three months. Not only did they teach us conjugation and culture, but they ensured we would know when students blessed us and/or blessed us out! The final gift was a delightful day on a nearby farm complete with babbling brook, volleyball court, an outdoor kitchen for a carefully prepared day of fruits, meats, beans and (yum) arroz con leche and a field for traditional games like sack races and jump rope.

To the teachers and soon-to-be-sworn -in volunteers of Tico 29 TEFL, you have my heart!

Started in Tennessee, spent time in Alabama and made way to Costa Rica after 20 years in Texas. I've focused on communications professionally in the worlds of church, government and nonprofits. Now I'm feeding my longtime love of volunteering as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Costa Rica. Just in case you don't know me very well ... The contents of this website are mine personally and do not reflect any position of the U.S. government or the Peace Corps.
