Quick update from a quick glimpse at what’s next for me …

My high school in Pocora offers art, music, French, and English classes and, since they have no gym, sports are done outside! The director (principal) is a sculptor and a poet. My co-teacher is creative and ready for us to take on the National Spelling Bee and English Festival. I’m the new novelty but even in the incredible heat and rain pounding on the tin roofs, the students were pleasantly engaged. This stage of volunteer work is the honeymoon period and I am definitely in love!

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.
