I believe that the world is your classroom. Every day there are new lessons to learn. I am originally from St. Louis, Missouri. I went to college in Chicago, Illinois. There I studied Intercultural Communication and Japanese. For the past several years, I have worked as an English teacher and interpreter. In my free time, I also did some travel. Some of the countries I have traveled to include: Japan, Hong Kong, Czech Republic, and Germany. I am also passionate about studying history and would love to give insight. For my Japanese students, I have taken and passed the JLPT N2. I know many useful strategies and books to help with the test. Please don't hesitate to ask questions. In my free time, I love to visit cafes and listen to podcasts. I'm also an avid jogger.
