I am a Peace Corps Volunteer living in the Republic of Georgia. I am 64 years old, retired from my position in the US and forging a new life here. I am here in Sagarejo, Georgia as a teacher with the Peace Corps. Although I am a Reading Specialist, I will be working with Georgian Teachers in the classroom (teaching English, ESL). Being a PCV fulfills a life long dream for me.
