About Oral History
Use Restriction Status:
Stephanie Motz joined the Peace Corps when she was in her mid-thirties, after working as a graphic designer for several years. She was delighted to be assigned to Mongolia, where she taught English in a university in a remote area, about nine hours away from the capital city of Ulaanbaatar. Motz was the only volunteer at her post, and the only native speaker of English. Teaching was challenging because there were no books and no way to make copies of her homemade materials, so Motz had to rely exclusively on the blackboard. In addition to her full-time teaching responsibilities, Stephanie also worked with a Mongolian counterpart to develop a women and children's center. 2 digital audio files (web streaming files combined into 1 file). Interviewed and recorded by Phyllis Noble, February 11, 2016.
