Importer of foreign artifacts, folklore, and folkarts
by Phyllis Hunter-Webb
(Austin, TX, USA)
Ever since I lived with an importer in Quito, Ecuador in the 70's, I've wanted to import art and artifacts to the US. I love traveling, but cannot afford it. I thought that this would satisfy my love of travel and make money, too.
I've been a bilingual teacher for 30 years now, and I plan to retire in May, 2010. I know I will want to continue to work, but I want to get away from education and pursue something totally different. During my teaching career, I have always emphasized an awareness of cultures and multiculturalism. My favorite teaching tool is folklore and folktales from around the world.
Maybe this will help me pursue my dream.
