Hi. My name is Josephine and I am from Montana, USA. I have been living in Nagano for about 7 years total. I am passionate about all art, especially Japanese pottery and mingei, and I enjoy collecting affordable art. Other interests include going to the gym, very very slow jogging, snowboarding, hiking, and reading. I also waste my time picking wild flowers while on a walk, watching movies or watching professional ice hockey (watching not playing!). I have two college degrees, one in German, and another History/Teaching. I lived in Austria for one year and enjoy travel. I would like to visit Egypt someday. I have extensive experience teaching English to employees from major companies in Japan- from Sony Global to Dentsu, and also to students at Waseda University. Currently I live with my boyfriend and two cats. My goal each day is to make any lessons you may have with me productive, stress free and enjoyable. Thanks!
