My name is Kayo Mitra, and I am an ESL Support Teacher (Grades 3-5). I have 23 years of teaching experience, of which 13 years as an ESL teacher. I was born in Japan, but I have lived in the USA for the past 29 years. I can speak Japanese and Spanish fluently, and I am currently learning Chinese (Mandarin).
I love my job as an ESL teacher. My students inspire me to be a better teacher and better person. It is a challenge to learn a new language, especially if you are new to the country. I strive to create a safe learning environment where students can feel safe and welcomed. Each student brings a gift of talents, and it is my job to help them show their talents while learning a new language. I believe that the teamwork between the teacher and the parents is crucial in student's success. Please contact me anytime if you have questions or concerns.
