My Students

My students are very dedicated and enjoy what they are learning....JAPANESE!!! They begin Japanese with minimal aspects of diversity and after a few short months, they are ALL so culturally sensitive and begin to view the world with a variety of perspectives. They are engaged in learning not just the Japanese language but how to develop a respect for other cultures and people.

I am honored to teach such spectacular students so I try to provide them with opportunities that will leave a lifelong impression.

These students embrace all opportunities for new experiences. They work hard to apply their skills and knowledge everyday.

My Project

My duty as a teacher is to not only teach but to inspire passion for the Japanese Culture and Language. My students are fantastic which motivates me everyday to find different ways to excite them and create the absolute best experience for them.

This project will give the students a lifetime experience while learning Japanese by sitting on a Tatami Floor while studying, taking notes, drinking tea, having student conferences, collaborating with partners, having discussions in Japanese.

This project would be a very unique opportunity that will definitely be remarkable for my remarkable students. EVERYDAY, my students express their appreciation to me so this is my wish to reciprocate my appreciation for them!
