    Welcome to Japanese Class!

    My name is Mika Katzer.  I’m starting my fourth year in the Aberdeen School District as the District Coach for English Learners Program and the first year as the Japanese Teacher at AHS. I’m very excited about the opportunity to teach Japanese this year!!  I have many years of experiences teaching various subjects both in Japan and Washington State to students of all ages.

    Being born in Japan and raised in the small village of Nakasatsunai, I feel really comfortable living in Elma.  My husband also teaches at Aberdeen High School, and we have three grown children, who occasionally come back to live with us.  Besides our children, we have a dog, several cats and two goats.  My husband and I enjoy traveling to Japan, and watching movies and Seahawks’ games – Go Hawks!!  I also enjoy scrapbooking and karaoke. 

    Education:

    • Fuji Women’s Junior College – Equivalent of Associate degree in English Literature and a teaching certificate (English 7-9)
    • Central Washington University – Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a minor in Ethnic Studies
    • The Evergreen State College – Master in Teaching: Japanese K-12, ELL K-12, and English 5-12
