Justin Parmenter served as a TEFL volunteer in Permet from 1995 to 1997.  He later spent 2 years teaching English in Istanbul before entering the Peace Corps Fellows program at Northern Arizona University, earning a Master of Secondary Education degree.  Justin taught from 1999 to 2002 on the White Mountain Apache Reservation. In 2006 he was awarded a National Board Certificate.  He now teaches 7th grade English at Smith Academy of International Languages in Charlotte, NC and co-heads that school's French exchange program. Most every day he wonders whatever possessed him to trust that sidewalk qofte.
