Hello Everyone!

I'm Laura, and I'm from Michigan in the USA. You might remember learning about the Great Lakes (5 big lakes) in school. Michigan is right near those lakes.

I've been living in Japan for almost 8 years now. When I was younger, I loved Japanese pop culture like Pokemon, anime and manga (my favorite manga is Cardcaptor Sakura). I've studied Japanese since I was a high school student, and I love living in Japan and getting to use my knowledge. I understand how difficult it is to learn a new language, and I think the most important thing is to learn through something you enjoy. When you learn that way, it's so fun you don't even notice you're studying!

Since I came to Japan, I've worked as an English teacher with students ranging from babies to college students. My passion is definitely working with young kids. I love to watch them learn and grow through English!
