Here’s more from AEON Yamaguchi School teacher Reisha sensei:

What do you like about teaching your students?

I love when my students achieve their goals. It’s also great when I’m able to teach them not only what they need to know but things they want to know as well. Through these kinds of experiences I’ve really bonded with my students.

Yamaguchi School Teacher Reshia

Please describe a typical work day.

I sign-in to start the day, then I do a quick class room check to make sure things are in order, after that I check the big schedule to make sure I’m prepared for the day. I’m usually in the lobby five to ten minutes before my lessons so I can greet my students. Between classes sometimes I have mini-tests (check tests) with my students. I have an hour break for lunch. After I usually have more classes. If I have down time I’m prepping for other classes or helping out the other teachers. Before I go home, I double check the classrooms and the big schedule for the next day then sign out and head home.
