Today I found that my school has just purchased a bunch of rainbow lightweight beanbags and distributed them throughout the rest areas of school. I just spent 20 minutes of my afternoon playing around with a bunch of 1st graders (who I don't get to teach) It really made my day brighter ^_^

Teaching at a new school this year and I can't believe how different everything is. Everyone is so kind to me and the principal is a riot and the kids are incredible. I have so, so much fun with them. And my co-teachers actually help me! I feel so unbelievably lucky.

The school took us to the Korea game last night again and it was so much fun! I know the students like me, but it's nice to see that it's not just an in-class thing, but that they actually want to talk to me and sit with me outside of class too.

I wore my Doosan stuff and a whole bunch of them rallied around me and we had a little Doosan fan area, haha.

My 5th graders always rush through their work trying to get out of class early. Knowing this, I prepared an extra work sheet for them. The horrified looks on their faces when I told them it wasn't homework was great. I gave them a 2nd worksheet for homework.

Muahahahahahahaha! Rush through my class again kids and see what happens.

I am having the same experience. Have gone from a  hellish situation and now I am at multiple schools, where I am treated with so much kindness and I feel welcome. To me this is totally bizarre because of what I went through with my last contract. I keep waiting for someone to suddenly jump out in a scary clown outfit and say "just kidding" and then stab me with the blade of reality.  Today I messed up my time management with a class, and no one cared. It was ok. First lesson, you know. They are giving me some leeway.

It's nice and I like it.

*so wrote that, didn't post it and had my first after school class. They are all satan's spawn!!! I think this is what life calls "balance" hahahahahaha

To balance out the fact I posted a rant, some positives:

-I was self-conscious about not wearing makeup or contacts to work today, but when my students commented on my different appearance, they said I looked pretty.
-One of my 4th graders wrote me a really cute letter telling me that English is hard, but she likes it more when I teach her. Aww. And when I told her I was gonna put it on my fridge at home, she squealed happily. Super aww.
-Lunch today was AWESOME. Pork bulgogi, lettuce to wrap it in, cucumber sticks, and my favorite sauce... ssamjang! Yesss~
-New co-teacher said I'll be getting a new computer in three weeks?! Woah!! Thanks, dude!

I've never had BBQ from the nether region of the US so I haven't an opinion but this offers some perspective...   :laugh:

So the student that ran in to introduce me to her boyfriend went to Japan for the weekend and M/T, and she just bolted into the office asking if I liked sushi and then gave me a very realistic sushi keychain.  :laugh: She is so sweet, haha.

I actually think it may be salmon? It's pretty red, but it has a slight silver skin on it. So while I'm not positive, my deductive reasoning says salmon.
