Welcome to SY 2022-2023!
Welcome to Ms. Yabe’s class!
I am very excited to see you all again in my classes! This is going to be my 12th year of teaching at OCSI. I am originally from Ibaraki, Japan, where I went to schools up to university. After I graduated from the university, I moved to Oklahoma to study, where I spent 5 years. I studied at Oklahoma Christian University (OC) and majored in English/TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) with minor in Child Development for 3 years. I loved there so much that I made good memories and great friends. I was going to work as an ESL (English as a second language) teacher after graduating from OC; however, God provided me a different way, which is to go on to the next level of studying. I went to University of Central Oklahoma to pursue a Master of Education in Bilingual Education/TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language).
I like talking and laughing with friends, snorkeling, driving, reading, coffee, grapefruits, beach, sunsets, photography and traveling. This summer, I stayed in Okinawa, went on a lot of snorkeling trips to different beaches in Okinawa, took an online course, read and drank lots of coffee.
