Adventure In Mid-Life - Travels, Life & Learning in Mexico and Malaysia with Lisa Goodhue

Two years ago, at the age of 55, Lisa Goodhue gathered up some courage and quit her job. She had been teaching in the public school system for 24 years. Her passion for classroom teaching had started to wane, her three children had grown up and moved on with their lives, and she had the choice to teach for another 10 years to collect a great pension, or to take a risk and try something new. She chose to move to Tampico, Mexico, and to continue her teaching career there for half of the salary she was making in the U.S.
Lisa grew in Tampico: she met people, learned Spanish, traveled the country, and continued to teach. Before she left for Tampico she had posted her resume all over the place, and had applied for many jobs of all types. After a few months in Mexico, she got a request from Dynamic WordWorks to be an SME (Subject Matter Expert) for an on-line world mythology course. Lisa accepted and learned how to be an SME, leading to a job in Malaysia.
Come learn about taking personal risks and following an unexpected path with this presentation by former Conval teacher Lisa Goodhue. Free and open to all. You don't have to be a Hancock resident to enjoy programs at the Hancock Town Library!
