In 1985 she accepted an elementary school teaching position in San Antonio, TX, where she remained for four years. Carolyn left Texas to pursue a Masters degree in English as a Second Language at the School for International Training in Vermont.

She even taught English to the crew members aboard the ship. Her cancer returned and she came back to Spokane for medical treatment.
