Outreach Chair - Eli Pappas
Shadowed by Nathaniel Reed
Originally from Australia, Eli Pappas is an Assistant Language Teacher (ALT) for the JET programme in Niigata Prefecture. He has been teaching English in senior high schools, as well as junior high since 2016. In 2018 he joined Niigata JALT as the Outreach Chair. His research interests include Socio-Linguistics, Language Ecology, and creative means to facilitate English acquisition through CLT approaches. Before graduating from the University of New England he voluntarily taught English communication to international students (including Japanese) at a local University.
The Outreach Liaison is responsible for brining awareness of JALT Niigata and our events to educators in practice and in training. This includes, but is not limited to, educators of any nationality in: kindergartens, schools, private schools (eikaiwa and juku) and private tutors. The primary focus of these inclusions is to hear from people with diverse experiences both as event attendees and presenters.
