Hello! I’m teacher Meg. This is my 7th year teaching. As the quote says, “To teach is to touch lives forever” true indeed. Because as an early childhood educator, we play an important role in building child’s success and to meet the holistic development of child’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical needs.

Hi! I’m Teacher Cindy. I’ve always loved teaching, but teaching kids in particular have been the most fulfilling experience I’ve ever had in my life. Being a witness to so much of their early milestones is one of the many things I like in being a teacher. So I want to continue to create a nurturing environment where kids could develop their skills, have fun, and be comfortable with the English language!

Following children’s interests, supporting their ideas, fostering positive guidance, and letting them have the freedom to discover truths in their own ways are my main philosophical goal as an educator.

Aloha. I’m Kenta, my heritage is Native Hawaiian/Japanese/Filipino. I’ve been teaching the English language in Japan for about 3 years. I have lived in different countries while growing up and thought it would be best to pass on the knowledge that has been absorbed onto the wonderful little kids. It feels great for me to see joy in everyone’s face as they learn new things while having fun. I hope the kids enjoy their given time with me. Mahalo! Thank you!
