Teacher is now Peace Corps volunteer

Regan Sandlin, a 2007 graduate of the University of Alabama and a Hartselle resident, is listed among 37 Americans who were sworn in Aug. 13 as the first group of Peace Corps/Sierra Leone volunteers to serve in the West Africa country since 1994. She will be a secondary education teacher.
“We are very proud that Regan Sandlin of Hartselle will be one of the first Americans to return to Sierra Leone after over 15 years of civil conflict,” said Ken Ayers, Atlanta regional office manager.  “Sandlin will serve America as a Peace Corps volunteer teaching math in rural classrooms.”
The swearing-in ceremony in the city of Bo followed the Nov. 2, 2009, signing of an agreement between the Sierra Leone and U.S. governments.
Since their arrival in Sierra-Leone in June, 2010, the Peace Corps volunteers lived with local host families. They participated in a 10-week training course that included a post-conflict orientation and classroom instruction on Sierra Leonean cultural traditions, studied the Krio and regional languages for nine weeks and conducted a summer school.
The volunteers will focus on secondary education in public schools and will begin their work in classrooms in September.
