From Peace Corps Wiki
I was the first volunteer to work in my site, though Peace Corps has been in and out of Nicaragua since almost the beginning of Peace Corps. I taught at 7 schools making viveros (tree nurseries) and composting and helping the teachers teach more actively. We played games, sang songs, did art and went out and observed our environment. Halfway through my service, my father remarried and I was the first person they told so I could go home for the wedding. When I got back to site a new dance band was starting up: Las Piedras Brillantes (the Shining Stones). It was named after the work of about 60 stone sculptors who live in Limay. I sang with them throughout my service and they continue to play at festivals. The school I worked with most regularly planted a large garden and the trees were taller than me before I left. The teacher I helped, Candelaria, is now director of the largest school in the district, so I like to think she's still passing on my ideas. I now teach music at a magnet school in Chattanooga, TN.
