Rosanne Jacobs has been President of the Japanese Language Teacher’s Association of WA since 2013 and a member for nearly 25 years. She has taught across both Primary and Secondary and is currently the Head of Languages at Mater Dei College.
My teaching journey started as a volunteer/assistant at two weekend Japanese schools in Brisbane. I moved to WA and have taught Japanese since 2010. As a young teacher of Japanese, I am honoured to be a committee member and look forward to supporting the Japanese-language related events and activities for the students.
I enjoy teaching Japanese to children from Pre-Primary to Year 6 at multiple worksites. I love sharing my in Japan experiences and like to network with teachers through JLTAWA. I have held a number of roles on the committee over the years. I look forward to meeting you at events throughout the year.
