Ms. Michiko Hocevar

  I was a preschool aide and stay & play teacher at St. Monica Catholic School in Dallas for 4years. I also have been teaching Japanese for 1st through 6th graders at The Japanese School of Dallas for the last 16 years.

Before coming to America I graduated from a Catholic high school in Japan (St. Maur / Infant Jesus) then attended and graduated college and after graduation I became a Kindergarten teacher at St. Mary for 2 years in Shizuoka, my home town in Japan. My interest in European culture, specifically France lead me to travel to Europe and study in France for 5 years focusing on language and art studies. After returning from France I worked for a computer software company as a DTP program trainer in Tokyo.

I enjoy spending time with working in my photo collections and playing with my 2 adorable dogs.
