"I am grateful to have met you."

Sayounara, Central no minna-san, and thank you for an amazing experience. ASU has set up my next assignment (Fall semester) in a different district, so I'll no-longer have the weekly treat of studying in the service of Toyota-sensei's classes. I miss you already!

I've still got "guest teacher"/substitute clearance with the Phoenix Union High School District, however, so I hope to come back to see you all again some time in the 2013-14 academic year. In the meantime, I'm still here on campus at ASU (yes, all summer long), and I'm more than happy to talk online or meet for study sessions if you're inspired to keep up language practice over the break. You know how to reach me.

Until we meet again, お元気で!
