I teach World Literature at Lake Washington High School in Kirkland, WA. As a teacher liaison for the World Affairs Council, I connected with a Peace Corps volunteer in Namibia, Africa to facilitate a letter exchange between students. I was excited; I lived in Namibia in 1998 while I studied post apartheid development, so I held a soft spot in my heart for the area.
