Naho Yoshinaga, Shiga prefectural Moriyama High School
Gannon sensei mentored students at Shiga Prefectural Moriyama High School for three years as part of the school’s project to “Realise a Sustainable Society”, encouraging teachers and students alike to think about global environmental issues and the future of society and the planet. In 2016, she connected our school with environmental protection NGOs and researchers at the University of Cambridge when helping other teachers and myself plan a UK sustainability study tour for our students. Always friendly and with a big smile for everyone, Gannon sensei’s familiarity with Japanese language and culture means that she showed deep understanding toward us. I respect her as someone who loves nature and literature, is true to her values and cares about everyone she meets.

“Tracey and I worked closely together as co-editors on an academic book (Educating for Sustainability in Japan: Fostering resilient communities after the triple disaster, with Y. Mochizuki and F. Noguchi, 2018, Routledge). She was a joy to work with – informed, meticulous, yet accommodating change and diverse interests. Her deep knowledge of Japan and editorial experience ensured an error-free, highly readable product.”
Holly Alderson, Out of Eden
“When tasked with producing a series of blogs to tell the Out of Eden story, we were impressed time and time again with Tracey’s deep understanding of the business and effortless storytelling, going above and beyond throughout the process. In turn the blog series has been a huge success with our customers and we would not hesitate to recommend Tracey.”
