It was an extreme honor to teach these students for three years. This group of kids is very special to me and I will never forget them. Hideki, Kyousuke, Kodai, Daisuke, Ekai, Kurtian, Keita, Kodai, Ryo, Avhishek, Chris, Yukika, Yuka, Sayaka, Moe, Yuna, Minori, Mana, Miyu, Fumina, Moyu, Hikari, Hikari, Juna and Kana...CONGRATS!!! THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!!
And with that folks, I wrap up my final graduation here as a teacher. Looking ahead, the new school year begins the first week of April where we will welcome a fresh new group of 300+ students. I have the honor of teaching them for one semester, before finishing my job here in July. It is surreal being at the tail end of my time in Japan...considering how long 3 years seemed when I first started! But here I am...just four months away from my time as a teacher at Ichikashi and I am thankful for every day that I get to work here. After I finish up work in July, I plan to travel around Japan a bit more, to a few places further away, then I'll be back in LA!! **bittersweet**
God is good. All the Time.
