Q&A with Teresa Sakai, assistant language teacher

first_imgDT: What has been on the biggest adjustment living in Japan?Sakai: Obviously, it’s a whole different country with different customs, and a whole language I’ve never studied before. In order to apply for the JET program, knowing Japanese is not a requirement … I can communicate a lot easier than I could when I first got here … All the people around me, their English has improved through talking with me and my Japanese has improved through talking with them so mutually we’ve just been helping each other learn a lot. Daily Trojan: What does your job entail?Teach · Teresa Sakai majored in social sciences and English at USC. – Photo courtesy of Teresa Sakai Teresa Sakai: My job ranges from visiting elementary schools to implement the English program there to visiting junior high schools and team teaching with a Japanese English teacher to holding my own English class for adults and children. That’s just my experience, but every situation is different depending on what the needs of the town are and how many schools there are in the town.DT: How did your education at USC help you in your career?Sakai: As an English major I can present myself with a professional air and I can see where certain mistakes are being made in the language with the students that are practicing. DT: How did you end up teaching in Japan?Sakai: I was going through the career fair last fall at USC. I knew I wanted to be a teacher, but I wanted to get some experience before going to grad school. I was basically looking for anything teaching-related because I know it’s difficult to get an actual education job without higher education and I saw the booth for the JET program … It seemed like a great opportunity because I love to travel and I really wanted to just try and get some experience. DT: In your experience what are some of the greatest cultural differences between Japan and Southern California?Sakai: All the students in Japan from junior high to older wear uniforms to school, and I grew up in Southern California so this threw me off at first. Also, the school system is a little different. Instead of the students going form classroom to classroom and the teacher staying put, the students stay in home room, and the teachers move from classroom to classroom. And you find with in the Japanese language you address people based on their seniority. There’s a very high level of respect for people that may be your superiors and you express it. DT: How were you affected by the recent natural disasters?Sakai: Of course everybody in Japan has been affected. My island is north of everything that’s been going on and my town is on the south coast so we felt the earthquake at a three or four magnitude. Earthquakes happen here all the time so at first it didn’t seem like a huge deal until we saw the news coverage of what was going on. And since my town is coastal we had some damage — the water levels near the harbor rose three meters, which resulted in a lot of flooding. But no one was hurt, which is really great … Also my area does not have the rolling blackouts … I visited Tokyo two weeks ago when my parents came to visit and life is going on as usual. The perseverance of the Japanese people is really amazing. Teresa Sakai, who majored in social sciences and English, is an assistant language teacher for the Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme in Hokkaido, Japan. She graduated from USC last May. The Daily Trojan spoke with Sakai about her work. DT: What is one of your greatest college memories?Sakai: I just love the football atmosphere. That’s been really hard for me to miss out on. I’ve been going to ’SC football games since I was in high school. So fall and autumn to me means football season. Just everyone wearing their school colors and supporting the school no matter what, I really miss the school pride. You can bet I’m always wearing my cardinal and gold on what would be game day and now my students know a little bit about American football.last_img read more

Gabriela Knutson clinches upset for No. 34 Syracuse, 4-3, over No. 3 Georgia Tech

first_imgNo. 9 Gabriela Knutson stared at the ball knowing everyone was watching her. She scanned the scene before her final serve. Knutson was in charge of clinching the match for Syracuse — a position she had never been in during her tennis career at SU, she said. But this wasn’t any other match. It was against No. 3 Georgia Tech. Knutson raised her arm and threw the ball into the air. Up 40-0, she smashed the serve straight down the middle of the court past the outstretched arms of No. 22 Paige Hourigan. Players from Syracuse jolted onto the court, jumping with their arms in the air. The crowd at Drumlins Country Club erupted. Dina Hegab was the first to embrace Knutson as the team followed and linked arms with elation. As the coaches walked over to the crowd of players celebrating, Knutson threw her hands into the air and started to tear up. At that moment, Knutson had not known what she had done for SU’s tennis program, she said, but she knew it was something special. “It makes everything I do worthwhile,” Knutson said, “Not sleeping, traveling, just waking up at 6 a.m. to go to practice. It makes everything worthwhile when you have that kind of support from your teammates to win the match.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNo. 34 Syracuse (14-3, 6-3 Atlantic Coast), who failed to close two matches earlier this season against Virginia and then-No. 16 Wake Forest in the final moments, did the almost unthinkable on Sunday and beat No. 3 Georgia Tech (14-4, 6-2), 4-3. The Yellow Jackets are the highest-ranked opponent SU has ever beaten. While some players, like Hegab, knew GT was a top-five opponent, Knutson made it a point of emphasis to not know the rankings before Sunday’s match. On Sunday morning, assistant athletics director William Hicks shot Knutson a text. It said, “This is why you work so hard, kick ass.”Despite the tall task, the Orange started the match with strong doubles play in the first and third slot. No. 37 Knutson and Miranda Ramirez dominated No. 1 Hourigan and Kenya Jones from the jump, taking a 5-0 lead at one point, en route to a 6-2 victory. With GT winning second doubles, Hegab and Masha Tritou faced off late crowd pressure to clinch the doubles point, 7-5, for SU. After Sofya Golubovskaya dropped her singles match, Syracuse led 3-2 with Anna Shkudun on the way to a loss. Knutson, who was on the opposite side of the courts, looked over to Golubovskaya’s match in between points. “I kept looking at the scoreboard,” Knutson said, “so when I saw that (Golubovskaya) lost I was like ‘Oh no, please no.’ I knew it was up to me.”Knutson opened her match by taking two of the first three games with three aces but fell behind after that. After a 2-1 lead, Knutson dropped seven consecutive games en route to losing the first set, 2-6, but blamed the early struggles on her mindset.After falling behind 0-2 in the second set, something clicked for Knutson. She stopped taking soft shots and began to hit aggressive forehands, she said.Knutson opened the third game of the set with two aces and never looked back, she said. Up a break, Knutson hit a forehand slice to the endline and past the arms of Hourigan. Hourigan fell to the ground, visibly shaken up, and began to yell at herself. Behind six-straight games won, Knutson forced the match to a third set. Knutson could not capitalize early in the third; she fell behind 0-3, down a break. Going into the fourth game in the third set, Golubovskaya’s match ended and everyone’s attention focused on the first singles match. “Sometimes it’s too much,” Knutson said. “Everyone rushed on (my) court and everyone was cheering. I’m like ‘I can’t think or breath.’”Down 1-3, associate head coach Shelley George began to shout in the direction of Knutson. “You got this, right here, right now,” George yelled. At 40-40, Hourigan’s backhand floated long and Knutson let out a holler and a fist pump. She ran to the bench and met with George.At 2-3, Knutson caught Hourigan off her feet to go up 40-15. After Hourigan shook off the slide, Knutson drilled an ace down the middle to level the set at 3-3. Hegab and the rest of SU’s players moved from their individual spots to cheer on Knutson.“Watching someone makes you even more nervous than actually playing,” Hegab said, “That’s how I felt today.”At 4-4 in the third, Knutson saw three-consecutive forehand winners go up the line as Hourigan went up 40-0. Knutson looked in the direction of George, who motioned her hands up and down to calm her down. After the exchange, Knutson flashed a smile and forced three-straight errors to tie it at 40-40. With the match’s most-important point pending, Knutson looked at George for assurance. Knutson fought off a strong serve from Hourigan and forced a fourth-straight error to take the game. She fist pumped as the crowd cheered her on. After the winner, Knutson had a feeling that she was going to win the match. “I knew this was my court,” Knutson said, “This is where I train every day, I was not about the lose the match (at 5-4 in the third set). It was mine.”Knutson then drilled four-straight winners to defeat Hourigan and clinch the match for SU. Head coach Younes Limam, who stood in his place after Knutson’s game-winning ace, said the end of the match commotion was more “relief” than joy for him. When the celebration ended, Knutson made it a point of emphasis to approach Hicks. He grabbed Knutson by the arm with a big smile on his face. “I knew you could do it,” Hicks said to Knutson a couple of minutes after the match, “I told you that you could do it earlier.”After the match, Knutson put the win into perspective: “It gives us the confidence to continue this season. I don’t think we’re underdogs anymore.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 1, 2018 at 5:27 pm Contact KJ: kjedelma@syr.edu | @KJEdelmanlast_img read more
