From left to right: Mikiko Imamura-Seyller sensei, Department Chair Carlos Gomez, Professor Monique Atkins.
Mikiko passed away two years later,
Monique had her house burned down in the San Diego Fire in the fall that year.
Carlos retired the following year. I can't say it enough how much you made me happy!
I wish they were reading this page somewhere.
My deep appreciation also goes to the following inspiring teachers whose kind heart still remains in my heart
when I look back upon my life in the US: Takako Izumi sensei, Mikiko Imamura sensei, Poet/Professor Steve Kowit, I miss them all! My big thank you also goes to Dr. Dan McLeord, Professor Emeritus at SDSU, who kindly offereed an innitialy support through SDSU. ... The classroom was my favorite place where I could be myself. My most active and long period at one school was at Palomar College (1999 - 2015) after my life was spent in the college and other classrooms in Japan and San Diego. Students were my takaramono. I had the pleasure of winning the Distinguished Faculty Award for teaching. I was also recognized the following year 2007 by the Board of Directors of the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce as Palomar college's Most Distinguished Faculty. Wonderful Memories!備忘録でした。 Meet Your Facult : Fumiko Tachibana
