New International Department Teacher: Welcome to Seiritsu, Coren!

Hello there! My name is Coren Cogdell, and Ill be joining the International Department at Seiritsu Gakuen. Im from Atlanta, Georgia in the U.S., but Ive been living in Japan for four years now. In fact, Ill be celebrating my Japanniversary next month (presents, please)! I spent about three years in Tochigi, where I also taught English, before moving to Tokyo last year.

Coren, with the giant that is Saijo sensei!

Im looking forward to working with everyone else here at Seiritsu and helping students with their international studies, English, or whatever else they may need. I was an avid traveler, but have decided to hang up my knapsack for now (packing is a hassle, :/ ). But I hope to instill and foster in others the passion for communication and cultural-exchange that I still carry with me so that we can all learn, grow, and care for one another together. Nice to meet you everyone!
Hakuna Matata!
