Lorraine is a teacher in Massachusetts, but once a month for an hour she is an online teacher in an elementary school classroom in Sendai, Japan. She has been working together with fifth grade teacher in Sendai since 2007 to help his students practice English with a 'native' speaker. She looks forward to working with the students and their teacher and hope that they will be able to continue this again in the new school term. Her poem The Children of Sendai will be published in the Stories for Sendai anthology.
