​ Marika

Hi! My name is Marika and I was born in Setagaya, Tokyo.  Given my desire to explore the world and understand different cultures I moved to Australia to complete my secondary education in a Gold Coast high school.  Following my secondary school studies, I was accepted into Brisbane's Griffith University where I graduated with a bachelor degree in tourism and hospitality.
After completing my Australian studies, I returned to Japan and worked as an assistant Montessori English teacher in a Tokyo nursery school.
I am passionate about teaching children using the Montessori teaching methods and philosophies.  I enjoy facilitating children's learning through fun based activities that enrich their lives and keep them motivated to want to learn more. -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_
I welcome this opportunity to work as an EDUC cultural teacher to educate children in the Japanese language and culture.

Hello, my name is Marina.  I grew up in Hyogo, Japan and graduated from Osaka's Kansai Gaidai University with a bachelor degree in English. exploring new cultures, so I moved to Canada to study Early Childhood Education.  Through this study I learned a lot about different teaching methods, including Montessori.  After completing my four years education studies in Canada, I returned to Japan and worked as an English teacher for 3 years, where I facilitated learning for children from 0 to 15 years of age. 
I'm a happy and positive person and I like to play sports.  I am really pleased to be living in Australia and working as a teacher with EDUC Intercultural, to again support children to grow and enrich their lives through education.
