I am THRILLED to be visiting Japan--I will arrive in Tokyo very late Monday October 13th after a long 10 hour flight. I plan to post photos and information throughout my travels so stay tuned!
Here's a little information about the Japan Fulbright Memorial Fund Teacher Program:
"The Japan Fulbright Memorial Fund Teacher Program (JFMF) provides U.S. primary and secondary school teachers and administrators with the opportunity to participate in three-week study visits to Japan and to return home with a follow-on plan designed to introduce Japanese culture to American students. The JFMF Program features an orientation to Japan followed by visits to primary and secondary schools, teacher training colleges, cultural sites, and industrial facilities. Meetings with Japanese teachers and students and a home stay with a Japanese family are also key components of the program. Participants return home to share their new knowledge with students, colleagues, and the local community. "
