Why the hell are Koreans simply not capable of empathy?

Care to explain?
Ignoring isnít the same as ignorance, you have to work at it.

Okay, so I'm about to launch into the pettiest rant ever, but I really hate when my one co-teacher steals my jokes (not the set-up and punchline kinds but just some stupid thing to add a little humor to the lessons or during instruction or whatever). Like, I'll explain a game to the students and typically I add a few words of caution but I do it with humor. The next class, before I even get to start explaining, my co-teacher has already gone over that part. You literally only give me game-time during class. Can you at least let me do it the way I intended to do it? It's the only opportunity I have during class to have a little fun with the students and you completely take that away because you want to be the funny teacher or whatever. Or if I go over a grammatical point before I get into the game so that the students can, you know, actually do the game, and then the next class he'll go over it himself. Can I not do anything? Am I allowed? Or am I just the game teacher but I only go over the boring rules? Seriously, F that KT.

Oh gosh, that sounds incredibly annoying. Start stealing his jokes. Or his coffee mugs.

Don't spend 20 minutes asking my opinion about when speaking tests should be.  Just tell me what you want from me and I'll do it.  I don't know when the hell these people expect me to lesson plan when they just bother me all day.

And, in my experience, when you finally relent and offer an opinion they're like "Okay well we are doing this. Is it ok?"

And I said I don't want to go on the field trip.  Don't ask me to confirm 87 times and send two other people over to my desk to confirm that I don't want to go.  And don't tell me 7 times that I need to bring my own lunch.  I ****** get it.

Haha I'm with you on this!

My colleagues ask me stuff like that all the time.  "Does the afterschool program start today?", "When are the speaking tests?", "Which grade are we teaching today?"

Shouldn't you be telling me that?  :huh:

This seems pretty universal. Why? I kind of dig them, personally.

KOREAN HARASSMENT


Are you being harassed by your Korean co-teacher or coworkers? They like to hack on my computer. My gmail account, skype account, dropbox, and icloud is blocked.  I asked my co-teacher to unblock my dropbox account and nothing happened. In fact, all my apple features where blocked the next day. I can see if they were blocking adult or porn sites but gmail? skype? dropbox?

I do have my own laptop but I am afraid that they will hack into it too.  How to solve this harassment?

Let me know if you can access gmail, skype, dropbox, icloud ?


Thanks!

That's not harassment or hacking. That's your school or MOE/POE blocking certain websites on their networks. It sucks, but it's nothing that your coteachers are doing personally. If they wanted to harass you, I think blocking your email would be the last thing they'd do.

Indeed, some school networks are ridiculous, blocking any URL that doesn't end in ".kr" or not government websites. Take advantage of Korea's fantastic data plans and tether off your phone.

Aaaaaand after discussing it with the vice principal, it has been decided that all teachers must participate in all school events.  So why the hell did they ask me.  However, the vp likes me so I think I get to stay home?  It's unclear.

I just can't comprehend how students can go so many years and not speak any English. I teach high school now, and the 1/2 graders I taught at a private academy have better English than most of the kids I teach now. I just finished a class where a student was held back and is repeating first year HS now (no one told me and this was the first class he has showed up to so I tried kicking him out, long story) but his English is so horrible he didn't even understand me telling him to go. I think he only understands yes and no.
