    What is most important to you when teaching children?

    I think that the most important things when teaching children are to be patient, understanding, and observant. Learning a language is a long process and each child learns in a different way and at a different pace. Although the end goal may be the same, we must be flexible and create lessons that can support each and every student.


    What do you think has helped your students improve the most?

    Giving students the chance to use the vocabulary and phrases in a safe and positive environment is something that I think helps students improve the most. In a regular classroom setting, learning a foreign language can often be met with a fear of making mistakes, so I think that it is important to let students know that it’s okay to make mistakes and to remember that the more you speak, the more you will improve!


    If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would it be and why?

    Ever since I was in high school, I’ve always been interested in England. Being a big Harry Potter fan, I’ve always dreamed of one day making a trip to England. This dream came true in May of 2017 and it further fueled my desire to one day spend more time there. Some of my favorite things about England are Oasis (the band), Black Adder (a TV show), and of course the tea!

    私は高校にいた時からずっと、イングランドに興味を持っていました。ハリーポッターの大ファンで、いつかイングランドを旅行する日をいつも夢見ていました。この夢は2017年の5月に実現しました。そして、さらにいつかそこで過ごしてみたいという願望が増しました。イングランドでお気に入りのことには、Oasis(バンド)、Black Adder(テレビ番組)、もちろん、紅茶もね!

    Where do you want to go in the world?

    I would like to visit Greece, France, and Germany. In Europe, I’ve only been to England and Switzerland, so I would like to visit more European countries and experience different cultures.


    If you had an extra hour in the day, what would you do?

    Recently, I bought a new mystery book written by J.K. Rowling, so I would use that extra hour to read it!


    Where are your favorite places in Japan?

    Before Tokyo, I lived in Fukuoka and it is one of my favorite places in Japan. The people are very kind, the food is delicious, and there are many things to see such as the Fukuoka Tower, Dazaifu Tenmangu, and Canal City.


    What do you miss most about America ?

    I miss my family and of course my dog, Dandy! He is a West Highland White Terrier, and he is 10 years old. His nickname is Dan-chan!
