I was assigned to the Municipality of Hungduan, Ifugao Rice Terraces World Heritage Site. I was a member of the Municipal Planning and Development Office. I was a teacher and taught Environmental Science to juniors and seniors at the Hungduan National High School. I researched and developed daily lesson plans, without the benefit of textbooks, to be given to large groups of students who spoke a language other than English. I researched and found grant money for 6 community projects. I supervised the completion of 6 community projects. I organized, developed, and lead 2 Environmental Day & Overnight Camps focusing on the diversity of the area and why it should be protected for over 100 local high school students. I was an active member of a community in a very remote village without supervision or other American contact for over 2 years. I learned and spoke the tribal language of Tuwali. I supervised the completion of 2 community toilets, 2 dumpsites, and 2 water storage systems. I created and oversaw a community based environmental committee which researched and applied for various grants in the country to help and finance environmental community projects that were needed.
