I have recently quitired after 25 years as a professor of psychology at the University of Missouri. Oh, to quitire means to stop working after you have worked somewhere for a long time but are technically too young to retire. It's not quite quitting; it's not quite retiring.
On June 11, 2015 I left for my 27-month assignment in the Peace Corps. I am a Primary English Literacy Co-Teacher in the Eastern Caribbean. My training began on St. Lucia and I remained there for my service. I am working with Grades 1 and 2 in a small St. Lucian fishing village.
I was very excited for this life change and I am still glad I made it.
