I'm back at Junior High!

As of last month, I'm working as a Junior High School teacher at Sakushin Gakuin. Its a really big campus, with students from kindergarten through High School. It's has the largest High School in Japan, with over 5,000 students.

While Japanese teachers are in charge of teacher grammar from the textbook, I'm in charge on teaching the conversation based program.

For most of the classes I teach, I team teach with one of two foreigners from my company. I work with Chris Nash two days a week, and once a week with Shairose Kara.

In this picture taken after the entrance ceremony, you can see both Chris, Shai, and Mr. Yamaguchi, who is the head of the English department.
