Two weeks in Thibaud
When I was ending my two years in Thibaud ( pronounced the same as Tim Tebow ), I promised my students that I would return to see them in January. It made leaving them somewhat easier, and I knew that escaping winter's cold for a vacation in the Caribbean ...

Maria
I left Dominica on Saturday afternoon, August 19, after an amazing 27 month term of service in the Peace Corps. I love the people in my village and the overall beauty of Dominica. I had survived Tropical Storm Erika , which had wrecked the island two year...

One More Bat Chat
After the Courts for Kids project wrapped up, I was able to coordinate a visit to Thibaud by two bat scientists (one Canadian, one British). They had come to Dominica for the summer to work with a fascinating program for college students called Operation W...

A Tragic Feast

The State of the School
This blog post is different than most, and may not be of interest to everyone. However, some of my friends involved in the field of education might enjoy this. During my first year, our school did not have any sixth graders, so we didn't have a graduation ...

Courts for Kids
Nearly a year ago, I first learned of an American charity called “Courts for Kids” (CFK). We probably need new bridges, road repairs, or other items in my village worse than we needed a basketball court, but after talking with some Village Council members,...

S.C.U.B.A.
Well, I got to cross another item off my bucket list. I finally got to try "swimming with the fishes" using a Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus—better known by the acronym “scuba.” I learned that Dominica would be celebrating DiveFest this mont...
