Off to Japan

So, I’m off for another adventure. I’m heading to Japan, a country that I’ve never visited, beyond brief layovers. Still, Japan has had a huge influence in my life, which I’ll explore throughout this trip. I’m going as part of the Japanese Fulbright Memorial Fund, which is sponsored by the Japanese government. Essentially, teachers from the United States spend nearly three weeks in Japan, learning about the educational system and culture by visiting various schools, government agencies, and cultural sites. I actually had to miss the last seven days of school, but I think that it will be worth it. Beyond the personal growth, I think that the experience will greatly benefit my students and the school.
