My Cornell Fellows experience:
"My student teaching journey in Japan has continued to be amazing. I have made it through a whole week at Katoh Schools, and it feels as if I have always been here. The students have accepted me, and they truly make everything worth the work...I also want to give credit to Cornell’s education department which has prepared me quite well. Without the hard work and wonderful teaching I received last year I would not be who I am today in the classroom."
