What I'm Doing Now
- Japanese 102 has begun! It will be another great semester teaching Japanese at Hunter College as well as The New School, not to mention being a Speech Consultant at Baruch College. I am looking forward to moving forward beyond the spring semester as well hopefully working with Student Diplomacy Corps again this summer, and then moving out of New York.
- Currently I am working on building my online resources for Japanese 102, as well as my lessons for the semester. Please contact me if you know of any online databases with Japanese practice problems! I use the textbook Genki 1, however the grammar is standard and widely used. I'd love to collaborate! This semester I am continuing to experiment with tools like quizlet live which has been great, integrating children's tales into the curriculum for more authentic contextualized Japanese, and also teaching with Japanese music. Let's see how it goes!
- I'm excited to continue my journey reading The Dark Tower Series by Stephen King. I'll be starting the second book, The Drawing of the Three this month. It is a great tale, and kind of heart breaking at the same time.
- New York Taiko Aikokai is gearing up for our spring concerts! I'll post when I hear about our "New York Tour" dates. We are performing at Sakura Matsuri in Washington DC this year which is very exciting!
