Huff, Yasuka; Japanese Instructor
Phone: (509) 533-3367
My name is Yaska Huff and I have been teaching Japanese at SFCC for over 8 years. After I graduated with a BA from Gonzaga
University in Spokane, I worked with K-12 students at Spokane District 81 which provided me with the opportunity to meet many
teachers who introduced me to a variety of teaching methods with not only teaching Japanese, but also other subjects. After I
received a MA from Gonzaga University, I taught undergraduate and graduate students at the Education Department at Gonzaga
University; such as "Computer Methods in the Classroom", "Network & Telecommunication". Before I came to SFCC as the
Japanese instructor, I taught computer software applications for senior citizens at IEL (Institute for Extended Learning) I also
taught a Business Japanese class for the Master of International Management degree program at Whitworth University.
I have lived in the U.S. for over twenty years, while my family still lives in Japan, so I try to visit them as much as possible.
Before I moved in Spokane, I lived in Martin, Tennessee and Portland, Oregon as a student. While I was living in the U.S, I
visited many places within the U.S. and other countries in Europe which led me to see what opportunities I had.
Things I love to do are out-door activities such as sailing, x-country skiing, and hiking. I enjoy taking a walk with my wonderful
dogs, Luna and Cocolo, and doing Yoga.
