My name is Katie McCarthy and this blog documents my application process for the United States Peace Corps and will serve as a way for me to stay in touch and keep my family and friends updated on my life and work while I complete my 27 month service overseas!
I graduated in 2011 from Arizona State University with a degree in elementary education. I spent the next year working as a first grade English language development teacher in an urban school in Phoenix, Arizona.
I received and accepted an invitation to serve as a TEL (Teaching English for Livelihoods) trainer in Colombia. I am currently serving in Santa Marta, Colombia from August 2012 to November 2014.
Wish me luck!
