High School Japanese Class

During my sophomore, junior, and senior (10th, 11th, and 12th) years in high school, a new world opened before my eyes. While attending a history class one day in what was either 1997 or 1998, an American man approached the front of the room, having been invited to introduce his class: Japanese language. From the moment I saw this teacher, Mr. Hopkins was his name, I became intent on learning the Japanese language.


11th Grade English Class (American Studies)

English was one of my favorite subjects in high school, along with music and Japanese. The teacher for this class was wonderful; she inspired us! Here is a sample of what we studied, wrote about, and discussed in this English course. This was 11th grade, and for me that means the years 1999 and 2000. Enjoy!
