Bio: 
I am the supporting spouse of a US diplomat. I have lived in eight different countries (4 continents) and have volunteered and/or worked in all each one except where I currently live in Uruguay since I just arrived 3 months ago. My background and skills include editing and writing, international protocol, organizing events, teaching English, and light farm work. I have three school-aged children and I am interested in some family volunteering during their school breaks. I am a native English speaker and am currently fluent in Spanish, formerly fluent in French, and have basic conversation skills in Serbo-Croatian.
Volunteering Experience: 
As a young adult, I spent one year volunteering as an English teacher in rural Ecuador through WorldTeach. In the United States, I volunteered as a host for international students, interpreted in clinics for Spanish-speaking patients, taught ESL to immigrants in Texas, and helped out on a biodynamic farm. In South Africa, I volunteered in a township school outside of Pretoria. I am currently interested in volunteer opportunities that involve teaching English or literacy, working with refugees, or caring for the environment. If these opportunities are near my home in Uruguay, I would prefer a long-term opportunity. Otherwise, short-term and family-friendly opportunities are best for me.
Education: 
BA-psychology, minor in French; advanced certificate in Editing.
Occupation: 
currently not working
Other Skills: 
editing/writing
teaching languages / interpreting / translating
