I have been quite remiss in my blogging duties. Oddly enough it’s not because I’ve been too busy, but because I’ve hardly been doing anything. I felt a few weeks ago that I was really enjoying teaching. Then my school had mid-terms, and field trips, and other obligations. So I taught very little over two weeks. It completely killed my momentum and sapped my enthusiasm.
Combined with some difficult personal issues back home, my teaching energy has been low. And of course students mirror that back with misbehavior or boredom. It’s been a tough few weeks as far as job satisfaction goes.
Not exactly blog inspiring. But it’s important for would-be Korea teachers to know it happens. On a more positive note I did get to go a field trip to Mungyeong Saejae with my school’s third grade class. I don’t actually teach any third graders, thus don’t know any. But it was still enjoyable.
Outside of school I’m making friends, getting to know my co-teachers better and exploring my surroundings more. Fall in Korea is absolutely beautiful! So life is good, besides the teaching low points.
