Chelanna is an ALT and Prefectural Advisor in Kyoto, where she lives with her husband and goldfish. She accidentally ended up minoring in Japanese language and culture, and, despite this, still kinda sucks at Japanese. When she isn't working at the BOE office, she is either visiting one of Kyoto's many temples and shrines, or knitting. She collects rubber stamps and all manner of stationery that will probably never get used, and things with Hello Kitty on them.

He is one of the Ehime PAs, and also edits the Ehime AJET blog, The Mikan (which everyone should definitely read).
