JETの先生は本校にいらして約2年になります。生徒思いの大変、熱心な先生で、授業や放課後の個別指導で生徒に生きた英語を教えてくださいます。
先生には芦花高校での様子をエッセイに綴っていただきましたので、ご紹介します。

          Hi! My name is Bre, and I work as an ALT at Roka High School in Setagaya. I come from Colorado in the USA, and I’m with Roka through the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program. Let me tell you about the classes I teach!
          Almost every day I teach Communication English, and on Wednesdays I teach English Expressions. In both classes, we start with about five minutes of small talk, and then we take ten to twenty minutes to review new words, read aloud sentences, and do exercises from the textbook. For the rest of the period, I usually get to do an original activity, and that activity is usually a culture discussion or a game! The students at our school get very competitive, and they’re extremely curious about the world, so it’s fun to think of new ways to get them excited about English and the people who speak it.
          Since I arrived at Roka, I’ve also attended our weekly French classes with the second-years. I lived in France as a child and I can speak fluent French, but I’m not there to teach—I’m there to practice my Japanese listening! However, the second-years spent their breaks asking me tons of questions about France and the French language, and we began to enjoy spending informal time together. I found that attending French class lets me connect with students whom I taught before but would otherwise lose touch with.
          My absolute favorite class is called Listening & Speaking. It’s unique because, while a Japanese teacher is always there to help, I design and teach all of the lessons myself—without a textbook! It’s hard work, but I love it. We have a small class of the most advanced second-year students, and together we talk about everything from outer space to American politics to climate change. I constantly ask the students what they want to study, and I change the curriculum to reflect their interests (within reason; I don’t know how to teach about global food!). I teach this class only once per week, but every week brings a challenging new topic!
          Between these lessons, supporting the ESS, and meeting with students who plan to go abroad, my days can get very busy. But I don’t mind at all, because the teachers and students at Roka are the best part of my time in Japan.
