Testimonials: What are NJ teachers saying about the Travel Seminars?
Learning and being immersed in the Japanese school system has greatly impacted my teaching philosophy. After completing the program I was able to relate better to the English Language Learners in my classroom because I experienced what it felt like to be in a different country with a different culture, hearing a language I did not understand. We also had a lot of fun seeing the sights! I remain connected to the colleagues that I traveled with to this day both personally and professionally. I would highly recommend this program to new and veteran teachers alike!
