Congratulations to Mrs. Gale Ikeda, Middle School Art teacher, who was selected to participate in a teacher exchange program in Kochi, Japan. During the exchange, Mrs. Ikeda was asked to teach a combination of Art and English Language classes to middle schoolers.

In addition to her teaching responsibilities, Gale is working directly with the students in Japan who are learning the practice of organic farming which is a part of their farming classes. This program is unique as the students are not only involved in the harvesting but are also learning fundamentals of seeding and care as well.

We celebrate Mrs. Ikeda's accomplishments as an educator, and now, as an educational ambassador. We are proud of you, Mrs.Ikeda!
