Brandon Bigelow



Hello, my name is Brandon Bigelow. After growing up in beautiful Bend, Oregon, I received both my BA degree in History and my MA degree in Linguistics at the University of Oregon. Go Ducks! I have taught in Mexico, Georgia, South Korea and Oregon. I am especially interested in content-based instruction; I have created and taught a United States history course. I have family near the Grand Canyon in Arizona. I enjoy reading, writing and playing basketball. Harry Potter is one of my all-time favorites, I like to write short poems, and I used to play point guard for my high school basketball team. You will be able to find me cozied up in the library most often. This is my first time in Japan, so I am extremely excited to explore this tremendous country, and I am simply amazed to be here!
