September 18th, 2010 I boarded a plane in Washington D.C. for the trip of my life. A few days later I arrived at my training site- Chernigov, Ukraine. My first 3 months in Ukraine I was in training- Russian language training, technical training on teaching and cross cultural training. In December of 2010 I swore in to service for a 2 year commitment to teach English at a school in Konotop, Ukraine. I have been in country for over a year and a half now, and I wouldn’t trade my time here for anything. Peace Corps said this would be “the toughest job you’ll ever love,” and I am finally beginning to understand and appreciate that more each day.
