Alumni Update: Leone joins Japan Exchange and Teaching Program
Sharon Leone (PTHS ’10) is currently living in Tokyo as a part of the Japan Exchange and Teaching Program (JET). This program is sponsored by the Japanese government to employ native English speakers from around in the world as Assistant Language Teachers (ALT) in schools in Japan to promote internationalization. ALT's are employed in almost every part of Japan in any kind of school system. The program has added 100 spots to Tokyo as an initiative to help citizens and students prepare for the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Sharon was placed at Chofu Kita High School, and works with students in their first and second years of high school. Her favorite parts of the day include walking around the school, conversing with students, and participating in after school club activities.
