PURE STAFF– What Our Teachers Value –

Each class is led by two teachers: a head teacher and an assistant teacher.

Main teachers are primarily licensed educators with either a teaching license or a kindergarten teaching license. In some cases, experienced teachers with over three years of teaching experience and excellent performance evaluations may also take the lead.

Gymnastics, music, and Japanese will be taught by subject teachers.
A licensed nursery teacher will be assigned to the 2-year-old class.

Hi!My name is June. I have 7 years teaching experience in Japan with TEYL certification (Teaching English to Young Learners). I’m a mother of a cute boy♡ I love teaching kids! I want my students to learn not only academically but also good values. I want children to feel safe and loved while they are away from their parents. I am also in charge of after school. I know that some children are anxious about their first English lesson at after school, but I understand Japanese, so don’t worry!



Hello everyone! I’m from the Philippines. Nice to meet you! I’m a licensed teacher from the Philippines. I used to be a Junior and Senior High School teacher in the Philippines. Before I came here in Japan, I completed my Master Degree course. I decided to go to Japan to explore and experience a new life. However, I think I am destined to be a teacher. After my Japanese language schooling, I’ve got the opportunity to teach again. I have used to be an Assistant Language Teacher in elementary schools for 2 years and a year in Junior High School. Because of my past teaching experiences, I’m eager to try new path of teaching―- that’s becoming a Kindergarten teacher. I’m looking forward to be a part of molding precious children in all aspects as possible.

Hi! My name is Yukiko and I’m an assistant teacher. I am half Japanese and half Filipino. I was born in Tokyo, Japan but I was raised in the Philippines. I can speak both English and Japanese fluently. I graduated from the University of San Carlos with a Bachelor of Hotel and Restaurant Management.  I’d like to guide and nurture the curiosity of each child and help them develop efficient learning.

Hello, I’m Noela, and I’m from Cameroon. With 7 years of teaching experience in nursery and primary schools in my home country, I bring extensive knowledge and passion to my role. What matters most to me is the love I have for children, which brings joy to both me and the kids I teach. Currently, I work as an assistant teacher in the 2-year-olds class, and I also lead “Mom and Me” classes on Saturdays. I find these classes incredibly rewarding, especially when I see the children smiling and enjoying themselves as they participate. Even at such a young age, children have a remarkable capacity to learn and express themselves. I’m excited about the opportunity to welcome many children and babies to Pure English Kindergarten, where their bright futures will be my top priority.

I’m truly passionate about helping students unlock their full potential and fostering a lifelong love for learning. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me.
