So Teachers’ Day was May 15 here in Korea. It wasn’t my first Teacher’s Day but it was much better than any of the others. At my first job, I was thinking about when I was going to leave so I wasn’t worried about Teachers’ Day. At my second job, I was pregnant about to go on maternity leave so I really wasn’t worried about Teachers’ Day. Now I have a clear mind!
So anyway, I got a few goodies… Actually, students aren’t allowed to give too big of gifts i.e. gift certificates, money, blah blah blah. I got a big GIANT bar of candy, some handwritten notes, a flower, and handmade soap. I appreciated all of the gifts I was given because I haven’t been here that long and I didn’t expect anything.
One of the notes was written in Korean, so my coteacher had to translate it for me. It was from a fifth grade girl who is really shy in class. She basically said that she enjoys English class but sometimes she gets nervous that I might pick her to speak (I pick students randomly using their class numbers.). Soooo sweet that she wrote the note!
That big GIANT bar of chocolate was so yummy! I think it was supposed to be for my coteacher, but she gave it to me so I ate it! LOL.
Next holiday is coming up pretty soon… I’ll be sure to show y’all all of the good stuff from the next one!
