I am really looking forward to sharing everything I have learned about Japan with all my future second graders! I think this experience will allow me to be a more confident and enthusiastic teacher for our unit on Japan. My struggle will be figuring how to fit everything I want to teach into 1 unit!
As I reflect on this week, I know I am taking back with me far more than information for my Japanese unit. I cannot get over the kindness and generosity that I was showered with this week. Every person we met with, whether it was for a meal, a site visit, or just to help us travel from one place to another, was unbelievably kind, generous and humble. Thank you to everyone who helped make this an unforgettable experience for me.
