Dublin 24, Ireland

What country are you teaching in?


What is the name of your school?

Konangakuen and Fukubemiraigakuen

What’s the best thing about where you live now?

Name 3 things you miss from home

My parents
My dog

Snacks – I`d kill for a Tayto sandwich

What do you think makes a great teacher?

My willingness to make a fool out of myself. Japanese students can be very reserved and avoid trying to talk to me in English because they don`t want to make mistakes. I try to show them that mistakes are a huge part of learning and are completely ok! Mistakes show you are trying.
