At this brown bag event, Patricia Yarrow, a CU alumna, will talk about working her way through the Japanese education system as an English teacher. She benefited by not going directly from university graduate student life to university teaching in Tokyo. Instead, she worked her way up from working in grade schools, to junior and high schools. Along the way, she learned diplomacy and how to extract the silver linings from situations any English teacher may encounter. This event will be on Monday, Sept. 9, at 12 p.m. in Guggenheim 201E.
