Hello everyone! My name is Blair Brauch. I am from the United States.

I have been living in Japan for three and a half years. I lived in Fukuyama, Hiroshima for two years. I moved to Saitama a year and a half ago. I love living in Japan, the culture, language, and transportation systems are very fascinating to me. Japan really does feel like home to me. I started teaching English in Hiroshima Prefecture. My recent position was teaching fifty-minute and two-hour lessons at a private international school in Soka city. I have taught children of all ages. From Baby classes with Mom to Junior School students. I enjoy teaching English to children, I feel it is both a joy and a responsibility which I highly respect. I want to help them follow their dreams and develop their interest and exposure to western cultures. I am looking forward to working at ABC International Preschool. Teaching English to children isn’t simply teaching English, but developing a person who will someday go out into a multi-cultural society. I have many interests and hobbies; including listening to music, karaoke, traveling, cooking, nature, and watching movies. 



日本には3年半住んでいます。広島の福山市に2年、埼玉には1年半前に引っ越してきました。私は日本に住むことが大好きで、日本の文化、言語、交通システムはとても魅力的です。日本は私にとって故郷のように感じます。広島で英語を教え始め、最近まで草加のインターナショナルプリスクールで50分と120分の英語クラスを教えていました。ママと一緒のベビークラスから、中学生まで、色々な年齢のこどもを教えていました。こどもに英語を教えることは大好きで、教えることに楽しさを覚えながらも、責任も感じています。将来こども達が夢を叶えるお手伝いと、西洋文化への興味を育て、経験してもらえるようにしたいです。ABC IPで働くことを楽しみにしています。こどもに英語を教えることは、ただ言語を教えるのではなく、多様文化社会に船出する人たちを育てているのだと思います。趣味・興味は色々です。音楽鑑賞、カラオケ、旅行、料理、自然、映画鑑賞などです。








Nice to meet you,everyone!

I'm Yumi,an assitant teacher of P3 class this year.

I studied English and Child Development for 4 years in California,U.S.A. and then I worked at a preschool in the U.S.A for 9 years.

Being a teacher is my dream I always wanted to when I was little and it came true!

I'm looking forward to spending a great time with children at ABC IP.


FA Aid


私は大学卒業後、東京の幼稚園で教諭として働いていました。その後、夫の転勤で埼玉と大阪を往復しつつ3人の子供を育て、 2015年から再び東京の幼稚園で4年間クラス補助を勤めました。

幼児は表現がストレートでパワフルで可愛らしく、 ABCIPで一緒に過ごせることがとても幸せです。

FAクラスの子供達は、ほぼ初めての集団生活でお母さんが恋しくなったり、 自分の思いを先生やお友達にうまく伝えられず、もどかしさや不安を感じたりすることがまだまだあり、その心の安定には保育者との信頼関係が大切です。ですので、まずは安全を心掛けながら、子供たちが安心して 毎日楽しく通えるように心も体もサポートしていきたいです。


Nice to meet you. I'm Miki, FA aid.

I graduated from university with a childcare license and have worked at a kindergarten in Tokyo.

After that I transferred between Saitama and Osaka while raising three children, and then I have worked at kindergarten in Tokyo again as a class assistant from 2015.

Kids are straightforward, powerful and cute, so I'm very happy to be with them at ABCIP.

FA kids may still miss their mother or feel frustrated or anxious because they are unable to convey their thoughts to teachers and friends in their first time in a group. For the stability of the mind, a relationship of trust with teacher is very important. Therefore, while keeping in mind the safety of kids, I would like to support both the mind and body so that kids can enjoy everyday without anxiety.



Hello and a warm welcome to everyone!

My name is Brent and I’m from San Francisco, California.

I graduated from San Francisco State University with a degree in legal studies/criminal justice. I also specialize in intercultural and intracultural communications. I tutored ESL and EFL students at the student learning center while studying at SFSU.


I have been in Japan now for almost 7 years and spent about 1 year as an ALT in Saitama. I moved to Utsunomiya, managed an English conversation school for 2 years, and taught English there for almost 3 years before coming to ABC International Preschool.


In my free time, I try to explore new food or places with my wife. We enjoy evening walks together, cooking, spicy food, reading, onsens, cafes, and coffee. I love building computers, working on cars, reading, snowboarding, DJing, dancing, art, and antiques.

I look forward to growing together with our students, parents, and teachers as we move forward into the 2017 school year. See you then! 













Hello, I'm Jasmine, the P2 class assistant.

I have worked at kindergartens and preschools in Japan, a pre-K class at a Portland public school with a Japanese immersion program as an intern and a private preschool in Portland Oregon.

I lived in Portland for 6 and half years. I graduated from a college with an associate degree there. It was my pleasure to learn painting, drawing, watercolor, ceramics, and ballroom dance. I love art! During the time, I was staying with a family for 5 years and was babysitting for the family. I will never forget that amazing experience!

I used to dance salsa for performances in Seattle, Portland, and LA. I'm practicing Latin American dancing for competitions in Japan.

I appreciate that I have met wonderful friends and families through my experiences in early childhood education. I'm so excited to meet little friends at ABC IP!



はじめまして!ブランドンと申します。ABC International Preschoolでの初年度にP2クラスと会えることを楽しみにしています。アメリカのニューヨークで生まれ、フロリダ州で育ちました。長年フロリダに住んでいたから寒い天気は苦手になってしまったけど初めて日本に来た時札幌に住んでいました。北海道と埼玉県の冬も寒すぎると思います。どうぞよろしくお願いいたします!


Hello everyone, my name is Brandon. This is my first year working with ABC International Preschool. I am really excited to teach P2 class. I was born in New York,USA but, I grew up in Florida. Because I lived in Florida for so long, I am no longer accustomed to cold weather. Despite this, when I first moved to Japan I lived in Sapporo. I think both Sapporo and Saitama get way too cold during winter! I am really looking forward to this year.
