The award honors instructors who “have had a significant impact on the lives of students.”
The student who nominated Steinmetz wrote, “Steinmetz-sensei is a dynamic teacher. Her classes are exciting, with a variety of activities. Languages can be awkward and embarrassing for adult learners, particularly when students are required to learn three brand-new alphabets! Steinmetz-sensei helps put her students at ease with smiles and jokes and clever mneumonics that make memorization a pleasure.”
Steinmetz teaches Japanese language and East Asian studies classes at Shoreline.
Congratulations on this honor, Mayumi. We’re thrilled you’re a part of the Shoreline Nation Phin Pham!
