Hi! i’m Addie. I started at Stage-Line Shinjuku in August of this year and it’s been a blast so far! This is my first time writing a staff diary… I hope you enjoy it! Last Saturday, Shinjuku School had its annual Halloween Party! The staff and teachers all dressed up as "Waldo" (as we say in America) or "Wally" (as he is known in other parts of the world). We had lots of great costumes from the students – pirates, school girls, killer pumpkins, and a lot more. We also played a few games and I think everyone had a really good time. Because it was my first party at Stage-Line, I was a little bit nervous. I wasn’t quite sure how I should act or what I should do. After the party started though, I felt really comfortable because all of the students were really friendly and everyone was in the Halloween Spirit! It’s so nice for me, as a foreigner, to see so many of my students embrace parts of my culture – and to have fun at the same time! Happy Halloween, everyone! I hope it’s a spooky one! 新宿校インストラクター Addie
