We visited the California School for the Deaf here in Riverside from 9 to 1 PM today. As always it was an excellent experience for both the Japanese and the American students. I was able to see some of the students I met last year, too. The funny thing was that, again, a few of the children asked if I was the mother of all the Japanese students!

Today we visited Yano-sensei's Japanese classes at San Marino High School. I feel lucky to be able to introduce him to my students. He is one of the most energetic and dedicated Japanese language teachers I know. He inspires my students and me.
We visited Mira Loma Middle School on Monday and it was great seeing Principal Huben again. I appreciate the fact that he spends more than one hour answering the students' questions about his school, his career and the educational system in California.
