Area teacher evacuated from Ukraine


“It has been a tremendous blessing,” said Cahill, who took an oath to serve in the Peace Corps for two years and started his teaching job in December 2012.

Teaching and living in Ukraine has been instructive and personally maturing, Cahill said.

“I’ve learned to have a lot more patience,” Cahill said. He also has found that there are cultural variations in the definition of success for a project, he said.

“The cross-cultural experience never really stops,” Cahill said. “My experience in Ukraine will certainly influence how I teach and how I think about the world for the rest of my life.”
