August 2014, Vol 1

Welcome Back to Good Morning Aomori, Aomori Ken’s online newsletter to bring you entertainment while you’re working!  We hope that everyone has had an AWESOME summer so far and are currently enjoying every last drop of that muggy, hot air before it dissipates into the chill of autumn.  Summer, for all its relaxing images, tends to be quite chaotic on the JET Programme, with dear friends leaving to continue their journey elsewhere, to the new JETs who come in the midst of festival season.  Hopefully now that most of the festival chaos is over, everyone (old and new) are settling in to their usual routines.

With GMA’s return we have a brand new, beautiful column editor in our staff!  Bianca Sanchez, who works as the CIR/PA in Aomori City, has graciously taken over the NomNom Tabemono column.  We’re excited to see what she decides to cook up!  In the meantime, if you’d like to help out with GMA, we are still looking for the following roles to be filled.  If you’re interested, please email or Head Editor, Jacqueline, directly at

  • Graphic Designer:  in charge of making the awesome featured images that we display on our main page.
  • Today’s Lesson:  in charge of sharing class materials, creative lesson plans, or interesting student work from JET classes.
  • Photo Corner:  in charge of gathering and sharing photos from various JET events or pretty Aomori scenes.  Also in charge of photo contests.
