I am the CompuChild franchise owner of the South San Jose, CA territory. With a strong background in engineering, extensive course work in child education and work experience as a preschool teacher, running this Entrepreneurial STEAM focused children's education franchise comes naturally to me. I got my Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Osaka University in Japan and worked as a machine programming and design engineer for two years. After that, I migrated to the USA. While I was an engineer by profession, I always loved children and had lots of fun explaining simple concepts in science and technology. To pursue my interest in children's education, I took 15 credits in Child Education and went on to become a preschool teacher and an Instructor of Math, Coding, and Mandarin. I am very patient and as a result, I was able to work really well with the autistic children during my preschool teaching career. As an engineer and educator, I feel that some of the trends in STEM such as robotics, programming, machine learning, data science, etc. are quite strong and children need to be exposed to these subjects early on. In addition to the knowledge of technology, an awareness about applications of these technologies is also critical. That's why, I am excited to bring some very innovative Entrepreneurship focused STEAM programs to the children in my neighborhood.
