I have worked as a Japanese language teacher at a TAFE and at Monash for over seven years. At Monash, I have taught a variety of classes, at levels 1, 2, 5-8 over the past seven years. I have been a coordinator of beginning, intermediate and advanced level Japanese units at Monash University for more than five years. I enjoy preparing creative teaching materials and interacting with students in the classroom. I have been appointed to a continuing lectureship from the beginning of 2010.
