Konnichiwa! My name is Naomi Satoh. I was born and raised in Japan. I came to Minnesota after graduating from Miyagi University of Education with a B.A. in elementary and secondary education. I received my Master of Education in curriculum and instruction at the University of Minnesota. My husband Yoshi and I raised two daughters and a son. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, cooking, watching figure skating, zumba and traveling.
I feel privileged to teach my own language and culture to the high school students here. Students already know a lot about Japanese culture these days. I would like them to expand their cultural understanding and improve language skills by exploring variety of resources available to them. Students will have an opportunity to host Japanese students from Kyoto and/or travel to Japan in summer.
When you need to contact me, please send an email. I will get back to you within 48 hours.
