I was sad to go because I taught two classes full of wonderful students. The first, my ninth graders. They are extremely bright and dedicated students. Their English level is very high. In fact, I had them read The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman during my last 2 weeks. They were able to discuss symbolism, themes and how the literature related to the time period. I was equally impressed and proud. Because of their fluency they were a great class to have a laugh with.
I also miss my class of seven or so elementary age girls. They were always a hoot! I loved being able to teach them songs and games in English. They loved role-playing and charades, and let's face it I loved watching and laughing with them. They are just so cute! I think they have the potential to walk in my ninth grader's shoes.
Here they are on my last day (posing with lipstick highlighters):
We also left 2 dear friends in Daegu. Our hagwon also had a Chinese program and so they taught Chinese. One teacher is from Korea and the other China. Hopefully, we can visit soon. 01 02 03
