Teaching English in Japan

A deaf woman in Japan has gotten a teaching license for English. Misato Fujiwara will begin teaching deaf students this coming week at Aichi Prefectural Nagoya School for the Aurally Disabled. She was the first deaf student to graduate from Nagoya Gakuin University. The school had all the speeches and announcements during her graduation last month interpreted in sign language. The president of the school acknowledged Fujiwara in his speech saying, "what makes a difference in your life are courage and willingness to change."
