Welcome to English as a New Language. I've been a teacher in YPS since 2005, following 15 years as an Adjunct Professor of English as a Second Language at various colleges and directing the Language Deparment at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. My second language is Japanese, which I began studying during the four years I lived in Nagoya and Awajishima, Japan. I also speak a little French, a little Hebrew and very little Spanish.  I am married, have two boys and two dogs, named Mochi and Nori. My hobbies are traveling, (this summer I didn't leave NY, but did hike a lot and ride my bike!) and eating at new restaurants and visiting museums. I am so excited to learn all about you!
