"Megumi was an outstanding manager at our company.
She was friends with her staff, clients, and her co-workers,
creating a wonderful work atmosphere.
We all enjoyed working together, and because of this
our school was one of the most successful in all of the area.
She has been a very good boss and friend, better than I expected."
Dan from the USA (English teacher)
"Meg has been an easy boss to work for.
At our school, we were lucky to have her, because she speaks English well
and understands Western culture.
The school had a clear sense of purpose under Meg.
She will be graetly missed at our school."
Ameer from Australia (English teacher)
