It is with mixed emotions that we say goodbye to the members of JOE 2012.
I thank each and everyone for stepping up and making this trip so amazing.
I thank the Lord for his blessings and guidance, and my fellow teachers, Jessica Roche and Cate White who made my job easier and were such a blessing to the team.
I’m so grateful to the many friends and contacts in Japan who helped us in so many ways; Mr Kano, Mr Nagashima and Mr Watanabe.
Thank you to the parents of our students for allowing us the privilege of introducing the wonderful land, culture and people of Japan to them. I know they will have so many wonderful stories to tell you all!
Thank you all and God bless you always- Learna Shimizu
