24年度の教職員フォト – 2012/2013 Faculty Photo

Around the time of graduation, the faculty picture shows up on my desk.  These generally serve as a reminder to how different I am from the average Japanese employee, though I think I get a bit more ambitious each year.  Nice as my cowrkers may be, they never wear emotion on their faces or do anything remotely interesting in these photos, so I just try to offset that.  This year, in addition to sporting a stylish bow tie I also decided to wear only athletic pants for my bottoms, knowing full well that it wouldn’t be visible in the final piece.  They scoffed just a bit at that, but I’d say things turned out fine.

Like a Boss

I’ve mentioned before the way that teachers here are moved around to different schools every couple of years.  Because mine are rather small, they can often serve as a sort of training opportunity for people to come and get the feel for things before moving on to a more challenging role.  Factoring in the switch that took place just recently, there is only a single member of the teaching staff left from when I first arrived here.  Not that this grants me the power of ego, but it does leave me with a bit of freedom because anything I do will be pereceived as something I’ve been doing.  I’m crossing my fingers for a young, interesting, and perhaps male teacher to come to the school this next year.  At least someone with a bit of personality to help me fight miasma of those here currently.

    1. As always, I’m always happy to know that people back home are taking an interest in what I’m up to over here. I’ll try to keep the good times rolling!
