I was born, raised, and educated through high school in Tokyo, Japan. I completed my Bachelors degree in Business in the United States.
I have been teaching Japanese for eight years in high schools in Houston and Katy ISDs and am an advocate for furthering studies of Japanese language and culture.
I enjoy travelling, for I enjoy the opportunity immersing myself in a different environment, meeting different people, and discovering new adventures.
I am very passionate about teaching Japanese and love assisting my students gain a respect and understanding for the culture and the language.
I believe that it is paramount for students to learn in depth about other cultures to succeed in our global society. Learning about Japanese culture, specifically in the business setting, will allow students to gain a respect for how international companies operate and can equip the students with the multicultural skills they need for when they set off into the professional world.
I would like to enrich the students' lives by teaching them the joy of being a life long learner.
