Q2. What Were You Like As A Child? / どんな子供でしたか?

I was always singing, laughing and playing with my friends outdoors. I loved football, reading books and playing computer games. I was always drawing, making stories and recording funny things on cassette tapes for my friends.

Q3. What Jobs Have You Had In The Past? / これまでの職歴

Since graduating university, I've worked in music and book shops, but my favourite job before I discovered teaching was working at a book publisher in London where I was an editor. I had a chance to meet many famous writers and artists.

Reading, music, writing songs, playing on my PlayStation, eating udon, hiking, going to the onsen and cycling. And of course: teaching!

Q5. What Do You Want Children To Learn? / こどもたちに身につけてもらいたいこと
