New VP just told all of the English teachers that they have to do 2 days of camp.

Usually it's just me and my (contract) co-teacher.

They all have to plan and teach their own class . For 2 days.  Then students will go to every class.

I LOVE IT. Less planing for us. We usually have to do 10 days of camp but he's cut it down to 5! It's AMAZING.

The teachers are LIVID. They are proper sulking because they have to do 2 days work in the vacation time. They are in a little huddle moaning about it and asking the head of English if there is anything they can do.

and I am just sitting in the office like  :undecided: :undecided: :undecided: :undecided:

Is this for wintercamp?! Your school is seriously ahead in their planning!

I had NOTHING planned for my 3rd period class and came a little early to plan for it, and it was cancelled because of the listening test. God has smiled on me.

New VP is on it. Not sure if he's on my side or not but he's definitely making things easier for me right now. So we'll see!

Bun Cha Hanoi in Ansan tonight followed up with Baby Driver, opening night on the big screen!  :azn:

And a cheesy dakgalbi meetup tomorrow with friends and Anyang's first hockey game of the season on Saturday.

Also, I took a page out of Sonny's book.





Did I miss something, something about paying for waygook?

I'm ahead on planning classes. For my main school, I just need to find a game/activity for Thursday. Luckily, all my schools have exams the last week this month, so I only have next week to really worry about.

There's some cultural festival going on next week in my town where they import a bunch of foreigners so people can gawk at them. That means 2 of my schools planned to have me go to it with the kids. 2 days of walking around and no classes sounds good to me :}

Yes! Long live endless testing and "self- study". It saves me making bomb games for my lowest of the low C level classes and attempting to get the A and B level students to talk and get their noses out of their vocab book which they are learning by rote.

The more tests, the better!!

Been listening to a lot of 70s music lately, nothing pumps me up for after school class quite like Bat out of hell and My sharona.

I feel like I want to go into the store room next door and have a little dance.

It's FRIDAY!!

I'm going to the east coast this weekend and I'm very much looking forward to it. The person I'm going with has a car, so we can go wherever we want. It's going to be a pleasant two days with no screaming kids.  :azn:

America's middle class is booming.

Between 2015 and 2016, US median household income rose 3.2% from $57,230 to $59,039, according to a new report released by the U.S. Census Bureau.

It's now the highest income year on record, beating the previous high of $58,655 in 1999 (all numbers are adjusted for inflation).

Reporting the median might be misleading depending on the kurtosis of the data.


kur·to·sis
/kərˈtōsəs/

noun: kurtosis

    the sharpness of the peak of a frequency-distribution curve.

Lucky you! I've been to Japan a few times and I fall in love with it a little bit more each time :cheesy:

Actually I am moving there next year (unless I get lucky and get a job I recently applied for here and then I'll go to Japan the following year) so this is a research expedition mixed with fun. I am attempting to attend a university language program there so I am going to visit the school and scout out neighborhoods for housing and see how far is reasonable to commute to the university because I don't want to live in Tokyo proper, but a suburb.
And yes, I love love love Japan.

Wow...your ticket must have been a bit high. When I booked in May, I check Chuseok (because some hagwon friends are going then) and they were like $400-450  :shocked:
So I just said screw it and book during exams. Actually I am super happy to be in Seoul during Chuseok this year, I think it will definitely be a ghost town. Subway and buses all to myself...lol.

Hahaha!!  I'm similar to you, my students have self-study this week, which they do well.  Then test next week, which is simple for me.  Usually, two invigilating tests a day.  Then I'm off to Japan for Chuseok week.  So that is essentially, three easy weeks.  Which is great because I have had night class for the last three weeks, for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, finishing 8-9pm on those days.  It is knackering, but to see students studying that late too, is kind of humbling.  I'd have gone nuts by now if I were them.

I am so flattered you noticed my absence and sudden activity. Well teaching high school doesn't require the use of waygook so I fell off the wagon a bit but yes since my students are in self study and I don't feel like grading essays, I have a bit of time on my hands...lol.

Waygook.org moderator travelinpantsgirl must be really bored. She's posted more in the past day than I think any waygook.org moderator has in the past year.
