I am a Montessori teacher in the Daffodil class in Seisen Kindergarten. In January 1985, I arrived from Ireland and started teaching in the Kindergarten with an initial contract for 18 months. At the time, I thought that was a perfect length of time to experience life in another country but here I am all these years later. It is difficult to resist the allure of both Seisen and Japan!
I love teaching at Seisen as it really is like a second home. There is a wonderful warm atmosphere and we really are like one family. We see a child develop into an independent, inquisitive, caring and knowledgeable individual. Young children have so much enthusiasm, curiosity and joy that it is an absolute pleasure to spend my time in their company.
My own children also have been lucky to have had the Seisen experience. My daughter attended the school from Montessori Kindergarten until she graduated in 2009. My son started his education in the coed Kindergarten before moving to St. Mary’s. I feel my whole family has been blessed as a result of Seisen.
Seisen is truly a great school because of the nurturing, caring and dynamic learning environment and the unique Seisen Spirit is evident in all areas of the school.
