I decided to join KIA because this school encourages and cultivates students' individuality and unique personalities.
I decided to join KIA because this school encourages and cultivates students' individuality and unique personalities. I am constantly facing new challenging situations when working with children, however, it is always rewarding to work with my teaching partner to devise a solution and to see how those changes positively impact the students I teach.
KIA is unique in the sense that it provides education for students that allows them to think for themselves. This helps build students who can think of innovative solutions to problems rather than being told what is right or wrong.
I feel happy to be able to work in an environment where my opinions are valued and where I can feel safe to ask my colleagues and other staff for advice or simply to be able to share my concerns. Working in Japan as a foreigner was challenging at first, especially when I couldn't speak Japanese. However, even with limited Japanese, the people in this country have always been polite and helpful. Working at KIA as a foreigner was also an easy transition for me because the managers and teachers have always been supportive and understanding of the difficulties foreigners face in Japan.
Working at KIA will provide you with challenges you may not have faced before, however, it also provides you with amazing life-long friendships and rewarding experiences.
