Visions Visited By Professor From Japan

On March 12, Visions was honored with a visit from Professor Dr. Tsukasa Sasaki of Yamaguchi University in Japan. Dr. Sasaki visits schools around the world to learn about their personalized methods to serve today’s diverse student needs.

Superintendent Olmos and the Instructional and Business Services Leadership teams hosted his visit. During his four-hour visit, the professor received presentations on our school and had the opportunity to virtually attend various student classes and events. 

Via Zoom Dr. Sasaki got to meet our students and teachers. He observed English, Math, Health, Daily Live and even a Kimochi Social Emotional Learning class organized by our Social Workers!

Remote Yet Connected

“This was not the first time that the professor visited us—he visited us in 2004 and 2010! He consistently praised that while we are individualized, we are not isolated. While we are remote, we are still close and connected,” said Chief Academic Officer Micah Studer.

Dr. Sasaki saw how we’ve adapted and improved our teaching methods and systems over the years to best serve our students and families. 

Thank you, Dr. Sasaki, for traveling to visit with us and other schools. We hope to host you again in the future!

Special thanks to the following staff members who hosted Dr. Sasaki: Sofia P., Alyssa L., Krista M., Hilary S., Nancy O., Nicole S., Melissa M., Dina Z., Diana W., and Victoria S.
