The USA decided to release all their placements simultaneously! I'm heading to Nara-Ken!!! I am so excited! It is centrally located near Osaka and Kyoto, both major metropolitan areas in Japan!
Since I didn't hear which town or city I will be living in, I am a prefectural ALT. This generally means I will be working in a high school or specialty school. I am just happy I get to stick to secondary education.
Now I play the waiting game again. Sometime in the next couple weeks I should hear from the Board of Education and my predecessor!
