Are you working tomorrow (수능 SAT Day)?
« on: November 07, 2012, 02:31:24 pm »
For the past two years, my school let all the teachers off without question. This year, we have to come in, sit in the cold, and do nothing  >:(

At least we can come in at 10 instead, to avoid the traffic restrictions for the test takers.

I was really looking forward to this day off, too! Poo poo poopy poo  :sad: :cry: >:(

*And yes, I am being immature and pouty, but I don't care!

I was told that it will be a normal day for me.

We have 3 periods in the morning in my middle school, although pretty sure that's just in their homeroom class!

So yeah, a day of sitting freezing and doing nothing!

I teach at one of those public/private schools - it's a small school so the middle school and high school are combined. No classes for high school but I have one middle school class. I have to come in for my normal hours (all the students that don't go to cheer on the 3rd year students have to come in too so there will be other teachers). I'm not too bothered by it - it means I'll finally be able to get ahead on lesson plans. Due to the irregular day my evening classes are cancelled and Friday we have a field trip.

All schools are different of course.  I will be coming in by 10 and teaching 35 minute classes.

Wow, I can't believe I'm the first one to correct -- it's 수능, actually.

I WISH I had the day off :/
I felt sorry for myself because I had no shoes-- until I met a man with no feet.

Yes because I teach at an elementary school.

However, my classes are canceled for some reason...some school activity, I think. So I'll be at work but not teaching. Good enough.

I'm at a middle school.  There are no classes tomorrow and I don't have to come in.  However, the school has some facilities I want to use, so I'll probably come in and mess around.

At least we can come in at 10 instead, to avoid the traffic restrictions for the test takers.

Interesting - how do the traffic restrictions work exactly?

Thank you for catching that! I really do know how to spell, I swear  it was a typo ;p I wish they didn't have ㄴ and ㅇ right next to each other though....such similar sounds, it's hard to know if it's a typo or a spelling error.

Tomorrow is a huge deal.  There must be nothing to interrupt the smooth flow of students (and staff) to the school.  People will be asked to delay their commute to minimise the possibility of disruption.

If you haven't been here for a year yet tomorrow may seem quite odd.

I'm not working tomorrow either.  My entire week has been weird because my high school is one of the testing sites and all of the classrooms had to be prepared for the exam.  Monday and Tuesday were short days with 40 min classes (instead of 50) and Wednesday I only taught my first class so that the school could finish prepping for the big day.
