Yoshimi Kato
こんにちは!My name is Yoshimi, and I’m a second-year BA student. I’ve found it a pleasure to teach in the Level 2.5 language class this year, and would be honored to teach and organize as Language Coordinator for Japan Society in 2021-2022.

As Language Coordinator, I will not only fulfill the fundamental role of the position to recruit teachers, carry out the lessons, and work with other committee members to run the society as a whole, but will prioritize the support of both students and teachers to ensure the Japanese classes are enjoyable and effective as possible. Here are some of my focused goals:

1. Develop and clarify the existing curriculum, taking into account student and teacher feedback.

2. Provide opportunity for constructive (anonymous if desired) termly feedback on the classes— not to pressurize teachers, but so that they can take into account their students’ suggestions (e.g. having practice in reading after teaching of curriculum content, adjusting the pacing of lessons).

3. Collate a list of online material (podcasts, videos, etc.) that are free and engaging so that students of various levels can work on their Japanese outside of class if they wish to!

Thank you for your consideration and よろしくお願いします :)
