Experiences of a JET Newbie

A Pennsylvania news site carried an article yesterday describing the experiences of a local in her first month in Japan on the JET Program. Tiffani M. Zalinski is teaching at a secondary school in Neba in the southern part of Nagano prefecture. Her story begins, "It is so hard to believe I have been in Japan, the Land of the Rising Sun, for an entire month already. It seems like only yesterday I was flying over Alaska chewing my fingernails down to the skin in nervous anticipation for arrival at Narita Airport."
