13-yo kid, after our 3rd lesson: Do you teach tomorrow?
Me: Ah, yes.
K: Ah eto… tomorrow lesson.. ano.. 13 o’clock?
Me: Oh, do you want me to open a lesson tomorrow at 1 in the afternoon?
K: Yes! I learn English, but you talk Japanese. And fun!
Me: Just sukoshi (a little). But thank you, student-kun!
K: I like you. Mommy also. *mommy waves and shows me their cat, Mi-chan*

I have a new loyal kid (and parent)… my heart is full! 😻 #WeAreRareJob#ilovemyjob

2019 Project 365, Day 121: Happy Reiwa!

Photo #121: May 1

Received this message a few minutes after posting my orange tree jump shot earlier. What a coincidence! So apparently, the new Japanese era, “Reiwa,” means “beautiful harmony.” It comes from a poem written by Otomo no Tabito who lived in Dazaifu! I am not Japanese, but my students and travels to Japan teach me a lot, and part of me feels a bit older yet wiser because of this new era. In addition, I feel even more motivated to visit Japan as many times as possible so I can create more videos to help me connect easily with my students!

2018 Project 365 Day 263: No Connection

Photo #263: September 20

One of the scariest things EVER: losing Internet connection! I thought I wouldn’t be able to conduct my last batch of classes from 5-9 pm today, but thankfully, only the 5 pm student was affected, and luckily, she’s a loyal gem who understood the situation.

I feel like I gained 2 more sisters as I “met” my co-ambassadors for the first time on Skype today! They are so energetic and radiant, I can’t wait to meet them in person!!! We feel like we’re going to do a lot of laughing when that happens! 😀
