Personal Information:
Born in Okinawa, Japan, I speak two languages and enjoy traveling to visit my loved ones around the world. I enjoy learning about different cultures, customs and traditions, especially from the families that make up our KCS community. When I’m not at KCS, I can be found scouring local bookshops for new books to share with our classrooms, in my kitchen cooking and baking or cheering on our local sports teams.
