Started teaching at Temple University Japan Continuing Education Program


As of January 22, I have started teaching Positive Organizational Psychology at Temple University Japan Continuing Education Program.

On January 18th, I was so excited to attend the orientation for the Continuing Education Program instructors. TUJ is now in Sangenjaya where I worked for 2 years.

Everything on campus was so new! Great facilities for students and teachers.

I was also happy that my teacher in TUJ NGO Certification Program, Sarajean Rossitto was also there. I remembered 10 years ago when I was a student and took her classes.
