Saori Takemoto, High School Programme Coordinator
I enjoy playing sports, including but not limited to swimming, skating and dancing. I also like to stay in during the extremely cold Canadian winters and watch movies and read novels.
I am originally from Japan but I was born in Singapore and lived there for 6 years. I went on a two-week summer program in Canada when I was 12 and I fell in love with the country. I came to Canada when I was 14 years old and attended a boarding school. I’ve been living in Ontario ever since.
I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Classical Studies at Queen’s University, where I studied the ancient history of Greece and Rome. I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of Toronto, where I became qualified to teach in kindergartens and elementary schools in Ontario.
Having been an international student in a Canadian middle/high school, I have an understanding of what international students go through when studying abroad. I hope this experience will help me be better able to support international students so they can have amazing experiences abroad, just like I have.‹ Back
