What was your dream in your childfood? / 子供の頃の夢は?

Working online is one of my life dreams that I'm already doing! And I have no intention of stopping any time soon. The internet provides an incredible opportunity to break away from the norm and earn money. I look forward to seeing if I can make it work long term. Building my own house I'd say is currently in my top 3 aspirations. I think about it almost every day! The thought of having a base to call my own, which I built, is a lovely one. Investing in property also feeds into my desire to earn passive income. I'll need a hefty amount of capital to begin. But property seems a good investment. Hopefully, over time, I can make this a reality too.

What is your hobby? / 趣味は?

I take pleasure in watching Hollywood movies. One of the best movies that I saw was THE NOTEBOOK.  I never really thought that this was my hobby, but I'm beginning to comprehend that it is. I understand that hobbies are activities that a person actively follows and enjoys. Action, Comedy and Romantic-Comedy movies help me recharge and bring me joy. I watch movies every day during my free time. In addition to that, I also spend time on movie websites to search for the latest movies in my favorite genres.

What are you skilled in? / 特技は?

My special ability is deep listening to uncover what is really going on. The art of deep listening is something that I've honed over time through good communication, critical thinking, listening to friends or colleagues and exploring my own limited beliefs and patterns. I've found that I can be flexible with my colleagues and can work well with them through listening more than talking because it allows me to hear the entire story and explore what's underneath.

What is your favorite food? / 好きな食べ物は?

They're all my favorites, I just like some more than others. I am not a picky eater. Over a lifetime, it's important to try everything if you can, because it allows for many opportunities to try different cuisines. Fish/shellfish, beef, pork, vegetables, fruits, cheeses and dairy can all be prepared in many different manners. What was my favorite 20 years ago is different from 10, 5 and so on, so I could even give different answers from day to day. Food is so cool, it's not just for survival and sustenance, each meal can be a true experience, but a meal doesn't have to be expensive or elaborate, if well thought-out, and viewed as an experience.

Which country or place do you want to go someday? / いつか訪れてみたい国や場所は?

JAPAN: I've wanted to go to Japan ever since I started working as an online teacher. I'm keen to see Tokyo but am also eager to see places like Kyoto and explore the various Buddhist sites, particularly the architecture. Once it's spring I don't think there is any better country to visit other than Japan. Always full of colors blooming in addition to their already rich culture and attire.


FRANCE ( Paris ) : It is the most beautiful city in the world. There are many reasons to visit Paris but one of them has to be art. It's a city where style and beauty are worshipped like gods, shopping is nothing less than an art form. Paris is the destination that one must explore at least once in a lifetime.

Suppose you were an animal, then what would you think you were? / もしも自分が動物ならどんな動物だと思う?

If I were an animal I would be an ant.


Because an ant may seem like a strange choice of animal to represent myself, but it may be an astute answer. Ants are hard workers, committed to working as a team, and often achieve very impressive results despite their tiny size.

Message to Students / 生徒様へのメッセージ

I have to get to know each student because I can accord each person dignity only as I know and value the background, hopes, dreams, and fears of that particular individual. I must find many ways to listen to you and to learn about you. Further, I must not only learn about you, I must learn from you. We must all come to believe in the huge potential each of us has to grow and develop—and actively support and celebrate that growth and development. The classroom must be ours, not mine. The procedures we follow must come from a shared logic about how things need to work here for each of us to succeed.
