From Texas to Chiba

A Texas news site ran an article recently on local women who will soon be doing a stint as ALTs in Yachiyo City in Chiba Prefecture. Each year, the Sister Cities International program sends a small group of young women from Tyler, Texas to teach English. They "help teachers in Japanese municipal schools teach proper English. The teaching contract is for a year, but it can be renewed to allow them to spend up to three years in Japan." (though the article doesn't specify, this would appear to be part of the JET Program).
