Ms. Tokiko Powell
ようこそ日本語のクラスへ！Yokoso! My name is Mrs. Tokiko Powell. I was born and raised in Saitama-prefecture, which is about 60 minuites away from Tokyo, Japan. After being an elementary school teacher for several years in Japan, I wanted to increase my skills and specialize in Japanese pedagogy. I attend graduate school at Columbia University each summer.
I love to travel and explore, and knowing English as well as Japanese helps me to enjoy these experiences to the fullest. I’ve had the incredible opportunity to travel to many countries and I’ve lived in three different countries where my ability to speak the local language was crucial. Learning a foreign language can lead to amazing adventures around the world as well as exciting career opportunities.
Your journey begins today-I am excited to see where your study of a foreign language will lead you!
