Kayoko Yamashita

Kayoko is a qualified primary, secondary school teacher in Japan, and has worked in schools in Japan and England. She graduated from The University of Nottingham with an MA in Special Needs Education. She has worked with children who need additional support to acquire English or with special needs in schools.

小学校でジョリーフォニックスを使って指導していますが、ジョリーフォニックスを習った子どもたちの変化に、一番驚いたのは我々教員でした。ジョリーフォニックスは日本の子どもたちに必要な指導法です。小学校現場での実践を共有しながら、このプログラムを多くの先生方と一緒に学んでいくことができたら幸いです。トレーニングは日本語で行います。
