In Japan, teachers move every few years to a new placement and to teach new students. It’s always sad saying goodbye to teachers I’ve gotten to know over the year.


But, one of the things I love about the time when the teachers move, is that often many community members will come out to help.


On Monday T-sensei was leaving. She’s a single, female teacher with plenty of stuff to move, but not so many people to help her. Many students who probably had her as a math teacher came to help, in fact, most of them were high school students, rather than her current junior high students.


I’m always amazed at how a whole apartment ends up fitting in a truck!

Today another teacher moved out and another in. They both didn’t have very much stuff, so the whole group didn’t need to come and help.
