Six Bougies

Hi! I'm Kim, a French-American living, working, traveling, and musing in West Africa (Dakar, Senegal, to be exact). I've lived here for close to three years. I blog about the intersection between Africa, design, and culture... and the expat life of course!

Abroad in Senegal

For the 2012-2014 school years, Kristine has accepted a position at the International School of Dakar in Senegal (West Africa) and is very excited to continue her work in curriculum with teachers at ISD, a dynamic learning community that serves the Dakar-based expat population with an ‘American’ type education in English. Her two children will have the opportunity to attend the school as well and the whole family is looking forward to new challenges. Kristine has been in education since 1993. She taught fourth grade in Ohio from 1993 – 2008. She accepted a new position as a Curriculum Coordinator for her district for the school year 2008-2009. It’s been a great ride ever since. When asked if being a Curriculum Coordinator is an easier job than teaching, she is known to answer, “It’s just a different kind of crazy.”

Peregrine by Nature

Peregrine is a collection of stories and people that I find interesting. And boredom is a luxury not afforded to us in Africa. This site is born out of a recent decision (not quite my own) to return to the country in which I grew up. If there is such a thing as home on this earth, Senegal and Chicago are mine. But for the most part I believe we are all peregrine, all aliens here.

My name is Carissa and I’m originally from the Canadian prairies – Winnipeg to be precise. I first came to India on a study-abroad program in 1990, returned as a student from 1995-96 and then moved back in 2003.
