Global Learning StaffBahia was an Assistant Language Teacher at a girls’ high school in Gunma Prefecture for 2 years, then she worked for the Gunma Prefecture Board of Education as the Assistant Language Teacher’s Advisor for one year before returning the U.S.  She earned her Master’s in International and Intercultural Education at Florida International University (FIU) and is now completing her Ph.D. in Curriculum & Instruction – Language, Literacy, and Culture at FIU (graduation expected in 2018). She works at the Editorial Assistant of the Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) while finishing her dissertation.

This blog details her thoughts and experiences from her time in Japan, thoughts about the JET Program and the JET Alumni Association, reflections on education (comparative, international, ESL/TESOL, and education in the USA), and other random posts about books, writing, and things that come up in daily life.

After a 2 year break, she is working on revamping this blog and posting more often.
