Dr. Naomi LeBeau
Hello, I am Dr. Naomi LeBeau. Here is my brief profile!
Languages: English and Japanese
Global Arts Plus: I am the new language and literacy teacher at GAP Upper’s Language Academy. Last year I was an MLL language teacher for kindergarten at GAP Lower.
SPPS: I taught diverse students of all grades at SPPS over the years as an ESL teacher and substitute teacher. I am very happy to return to SPPS!
Higher Education: I taught anti-racist education and multicultural/global education in higher education in the Twin Cities area for a number of years.
Family: I live with my husband and two cats, Momotaro and Smokey. My daughter lives in Tokyo. She was born in St. Paul, graduated from Central High School, and is a fluent speaker of English, French and Japanese.
Hobbies: I love climbing mountains and trekking. Also, I am a fan of medieval castles. I grew up in a medieval castle city in Japan, not far from the Japan Alps!
Miscellaneous fact: My first career was in journalism as a reporter and photographer for an English-language newspaper in Tokyo.
