Hello, my name is David. I am from a small town in Alberta, Canada, and arrived in Japan 10 years ago with my wife. Since then, I have spent 7 of those years teaching English to preschool and elementary-school children, and have been blessed with two beautiful daughters of my own. Creativity is my strong suit and I have weathered many excruciating hot-glue burns and pesky paper-cuts to elevate classroom activities in hopes it might help foster a child’s interest in learning.
Nothing has been more rewarding to me as a teacher than to hear my students shouting “Cool!”, and proceed to give a full account of the days activities to their parents an hour later. Also, nothing is more crushing to me as a teacher than to hear parents ask my student, “What did you learn today?”, and the student reply, “I forget.”
