Fukuoka Prefecture Compulsory Education Division
TEL: 092-643-3910

Hello!  My name is Wesley Bishop and I’m the Prefectural Advisor (PA) for the Compulsory Education (JHS) Division of the Fukuoka Prefectural Board of Education.  This is my 4th year on JET.  I spent the last three years teaching at 20+ elementary and junior high schools in areas surrounding Fukuoka City as an ALT for the Fukuoka Education Office.
I’m from the “Crossroads of America” – Indiana in the United States.  I received my degree in International Business and Finance and in addition to a minor in Japanese, largely thanks to a semester I spent studying in Nagoya here in Japan.  After graduating, I worked for the Japan-America Society of Indiana for two years before coming on JET.
As a PA, I’m here to help with contractual clarification and to serve as a liaison between ALTs and the prefecture.  I am also available to help address any questions or concerns you may have during your stay here as a JET.  Along with the other PAs, I’m also involved in planning events and seminars for both ALTs and JTEs alike.
Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any inquiries and I hope you have a great experience living and working in Fukuoka!
