Ms. Ayumi

Hello, I am Ms. Ayumi and here is a little bit about me. I was born and raised in Japan, graduated from Tokyo Rissho Jr. College. I studied English and International Tourism. I have always enjoyed traveling and having experiences with different cultures and people. I am a mother of three children. I love the ocean.

Since, 2007 I have been working with young children. I have been here at SSCA since the summer of 2011. Recently I took a new position as a breaker after being a lead teacher in a classroom since the beginning of my career. I really enjoy the change; now I am able to be in all of the classrooms, to get to know about all of the children, and work with all of the ages that we teach.

It is my pleasure working with your children!
