I am honoured to be President of JLTAWA having been a member for 17 years… I have experience teaching Primary and Secondary, city and country, Public and Private! Feel free to contact me any time if you think I may be able to help!

よろしくおねがいいたします!

Anne Ashby

Vice-President

At the start of my career I taught in the public sector for 12 years and I am now in my 15th year with AISWA at MLC. I have always loved the Japanese culture and seem destined to learn the Japanese language. At the age of 3, I asked my Mum to teach me Japanese, although she could not oblige! I really enjoy having the opportunity to visit Japan every two years when taking students on tour, as it allows me to soak in the culture and language again. I also love Japanese dramas, which I binge-watch in the holidays!

Fiona Blair

Secretary

Six years ago, after 15 years teaching mainstream students and those with special needs, I enthusiastically took up the challenge to become a Japanese teacher. I now teach part-time across 2 sites. Having spent a year with my family as a JET in northern Hokkaido, I have recently returned to teaching with a renewed vigour and enthusiasm for all things Japanese! I’m delighted to be back on the JLTAWA Committee as Secretary and look forward to working with the Committee to promote the teaching of Japanese language and culture across WA.

こんにちは!Since commencing teaching primary school Japanese since 1998, both in the Pilbara and in the city, I am passionate about our Learning Area. I enjoy providing experiences for students (and teachers) to engage in this fascinating culture and develop language skills they are able to use in real-life situations. Any requests for help with programming, managing students or special events are welcome. Suggestions for JLTAWA support or events are also invited.
