I am a Japanese/English speaking 51-year-old-female with two high teens, from Bunkyo-ku.
"My intention is to be a Japanese grand mother figure to your children."
I started babysitting when I was in high school in US. I have lived in Canada when I was in an elementary school. I went to HS and graduated from a college in the US. After my marriage, I moved back to US in 1999 until 2011.
Both of my kids are born in US and went schools. My older child graduated from an international school in Tokyo and attending a college in San Antonio, TX. My younger child is a HS student in Tokyo.
My experiences are volunteering and chaperoning to field trips and events at my children's schools since they were in preschools to current. Volunteering includes leading art class, story book reading, introducing my cultural background, and library organization, classroom mom, graduation committee, and school event helper .
I worked at Tokyo Disneyland for one and a half years. I really enjoyed having to mingle with international (including Japanese) visitors and their children trying to find out their needs at the moment within a very little time and make them happier.
