It has been a long time since I posted anything, but thought with all the new beginnings, now would be a great time. I am just starting to dig into my new job at Asahijuku Secondary School. It is a small program now, with only about 100 students. Over the next few years we plan to build on its strengths in science and languages to build a Global Studies program that will prepare our students to be global leaders. We currently have students from Japan, China, Thailand, and South Korea, and hope to create a truly global program by recruiting students from The Americas, Europe, Africa, Australasia, and the Middle East.
