They don't leave packages because if they did and it went missing, they would get blamed and be on the hook for it. You can always get things delivered to a convenience store.

Except they've left packages at my door before. The thing I'm waiting for is literally tags for shipping luggage back home. No one's going to steal that.  :laugh:

Huh. Maybe my experience is the unusual one, then. I usually get about 10-15 packages delivered every month, and each and every one is the same process.

But Waygook.org user Mr. DeMartino is right - you can get it dropped off at a convenience store.

I would prefer it get dropped of my school, hence the note I left. I'm a 5 minute walk from my school, and if they won't leave at my door, they might as well just bring it to me.

I should say they won't leave valuable seeming items. I have a feeling if it was a bag marked "socks" value=8000won they'd just leave them.

They called me during class again. I texted my location, and they haven't shown up to my school yet. Guess we'll continue this tomorrow.

Not being rude here, I know it's hard to tell meaning from text so I'm not being shitty  :laugh: :laugh:

but why dont you put your schools address and have it delivered there? Most teachers do it.

Because I'm at a different school everyday, and I didn't know when they would ship the tags. I also assumed they would just leave it at my door since it's just an envelope with low value.

Plus the one time I had something delivered here, it was delivered to the wrong school and I spent 2 days trying to track down the teacher who signed for it. Again, I think it's just easier for them to come up here after they call since I'm just down the street...

Occasionally my elem. coT will say she needs to teach a class alone (while I just keep quiet in the back), aka click through the CD. 

She sings along with the songs. 

She's the only one.

Why are KIA cars so annoying?  I looked at the new Stonic; terrible name, nuice looking machine for the cost.  Anyway, i try to get in, i don't fit , so i adjust the seat in every possible way, and then the steering wheel.  I end in a position where my knees are very close to the wheel, and may knock it whilst driving.  Also, in this position, there is zero leg room behind me, and my wife needs to sit there to look after the baby.

The Hyundai Kona doesn't seem to have this problem, i can sit quite comfortably as i do in my current small car; Hyundai Accent.  The only prblem is the Kona looks over designed on the outside, and very under designed inside.

I also tried to sit in a K3, and a Sorento and had the same problems.  I am tall but not monstrously tall, 6 foot 1 is barely above UK average!

I dislike when I am trying to relax and use the restroom at school, and the cleaning lady comes in and decides to start slinging her mop all over the place. Actually, I really wish that they would pick up on the whole close the restroom to clean it thing.

Is that from the YBM grade 4 lesson 4 video?
My kids begged and pleaded to watch that part over and over again. We spent a good 10 minutes with that on loop just laughing and laughing...
I wish I had that on video so I could send it to whoever makes them. I'm sure it would put a warm glow in their heart knowing how much joy they brought to my classroom!

Kids are noisy banshees today. They got that summer fever~

Yep. My classes are write-offs this week. If I walk through the hallway during a free period, I see ~80% of the homeroom teachers playing movies. Heaven forbid I suggest we watch a movie during my class time though. My school is also hilariously starting summer vacation a week later than most schools this year because of some construction last winter vacation (I think. It's unclear.) Another week and a half of movies for the kids it is.

Yeahhh so what's up with that? I've witnessed the same thing yet was pressured to spend the last half week of class continuing to teach from the book. I ended up doing a fun lesson because I don't have a death wish but why am I perceived as lazy for actively planning/participating in a fun lesson and yet 35 minutes of Ratatouille is totes cool elsewhere?

Apparently the movie Moana is not appropriate for children in Korea according to my coteacher.... Because it depicts a different religion to hers and this might confuse children.

That's too bad, my own kids have loved it. Even the ones who complained about the choice ended up being completely sucked into it.

What are the alternatives, lol?
