Hello, my name is Erin Rysinski.
I was born and raised in the South Eastern United States where I also attended university and received my Bachelor's degree in Art Education. I have over 6 years of experience in teaching and designing curriculum for both early childhood and elementary aged students of a variety of different nationalities and cultural backgrounds. I look forward to this opportunity to use my experiences to help to further develop the students of Kerria International School.

Hi everyone. My name is AyakoHatomi-Seligman. 
I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. Ever since I was little, I spent my summers in Hawaii learning and teaching. It was an amazing experience. Then I moved to Los Angeles and lived there for over 20 years. I have a degree in music education and have spent my time raising my family and teaching children how to play music in English. The majority of my teaching over the last twenty years has been in Los Angeles.  I'm very excited to teach and share my experience at Kerria international school.
Thank you

Hi, My name is Aurora.
I am from the Philippines, where I studied Elementary Education at the University of Eastern Philippines.  I've been teaching international students for over 6 years. Working with children of different nationalities and cultures has made my chosen profession truly interesting and enjoyable. Coming from a huge family, I feel my job is not more than being a step away from home. Together with you, the parents, and all the staff, I am looking forward to teaching and taking part in shaping our children's bright future at Keirra international school.
Thank you.
