I can't begin to tell you how HAPPY I am that I'm back at school!!  I caught flu a week ago last Friday, thought I'd be better by the Monday.  Nope!  Still sick as Hell on Monday but worked anyway.  Came into work Tuesday only to be told that my CoTs ratted me out to the main teacher that I was really sick.  Was forced to go to the clinic (forced meaning guilted) and was sent home with a 5 day ban from school.  I've never been so damn bored in my life!  I don't fell 100% but I don't think I could take another day of being stuck in my apartment. 

YAY FOR BEING BACK AT WORK!!!   and I missed the HELL outta my kids!

If you have flu, you shouldn't be around other people, especially kids. It's a highly contagious and potentially fatal illness.

I spent far too long preparing a Christmas themed choose your own adventure ppt for my students. I was a bit nervous about how it would go over since they were expecting to just watch a movie. They LOVED it. I am glad the work was appreciated.

Yeah, gotta agree with this. If you were my co-worker and wouldn't want you to be anywhere near me. Let alone around children.

This time of year, most classess are preparing for the school festival so it's a great time for me to do my own work and watch students prepare their class dance performance...which is about 40 minutes of students just yelling at each other to listen, stand up, get in line, etc lol

but it's just nice to see a class work together, even the 까불이들 (rambunctious kids) are super serious about it

if only they tried this hard during school  :rolleyes::cry: haha

(btw, if you have a good relationship w/ a student who doesn't behave well in class (ie. talks or plays around too much) you can call them a 까불이  :P)

A couple of weeks ago I had an all-out argument with a KT. It's been building up for a while before then, and she's really been testing me, and I finally had enough and called her out (I was diplomatic about it at first, but she became super disrespectful, so I ended up giving her no wiggle room). In the end, she tried to turn it around with a "If you hate Korea, you should leave" defense, which made absolutely no ****** sense, and whatever she had to say before then basically fell apart as a result.

She ended up losing a lot of face.

I expected this to bite me in the ass later, but, as it turns out, other KTs had been waiting for me to do it. The principal, too. Everyone knew what this person was all about, and no one blamed me for it. They were all actually super happy about it because this person is super passive aggressive and has been rubbing a lot of people the wrong way for a long time.

I've gotten several pats on the back over this. It's refreshing. I still expect to pay for this in some way in the future, but it feels good to know that I at least have support over this.

Going to Loup Blanc in Hongdae tonight for their Christmas Set Menu.

That's enough reason to celebrate.

Last summer our school english camp got cancelled due to renovations.  I went and made 3 million won at another camp. Cool. That's 3 million i would not have made if the camp had not been cancelled. The upcoming winter camp is now looking doubtful again due to renovations possibly. I would be happy if it was cancelled. So would my supervisor teacher.

$3k USD = 3.375 million KRW

3 million KRW = $2,665 USD

(Actually a bit less favorable when accounting for exchange fees.)

It's been over a decade since 1,000 won equaled one dollar.

Splitting hairs.  Most would understand what I meant.  That's beside the point. 

I call BS on the OP for being given 3M won for NOT attending an English Camp.  Maybe along the lines of 300,000, but not 3M.  And even if it were a mistype, having the PoE just 'give' you money is doubtful.

He said he made it doing camp somewhere else; But I agree, it does seem pretty high for a camp (unless he had to give up his vacation time and got it paid out instead)

They are saying the went and worked another camp instead and got paid for that. There is plenty of camp work out there if you have the free time.

3M worth?  Again, doubt it.  Unless OP was working 4-5 5 day camps, you still wouldn't pull in 3M.  And if I'm wrong, which I am a lot, I want to work in their PoE/MoE.  The must have one hell of a budget.

A camp I was looking at doing was 9am-1pm, M-F, 40,000 p/h for 3 weeks. That's 2.4 mill. That was sponsored by the city and held in a public library. I guess they had class space there.

There are all day ones, 9-5. One's with a higher/lower hourly rate. 3 million would be at the higher end, but definitely possible. My wife did a science one a few years ago. I can't remember the hours, but I do remember she earned more in 10 days than she usually would in a month.

How are you allowed to teach a camp at another school and get paid for it, assuming this happened to a public school teacher?

Your contract is to your province's ministry of education, so technically all schools in that area count as the same employer. If you have your school's permission, there's no issue in working at another school.
