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?

I hope they don't. At my Friday school, the restroom is being "cleaned" usually for the entirety of the afternoon. Thankfully, there are double doors that both lock to the main teacher's crapper so I can get a little bit of privacy to drop a deuce.

If we had the double thing it may be okay. I just hate while I am trying to do the do in peace, and she comes in, makes tea, pushes stuff around, and then proceeds to "clean" the floor by sloshing water everywhere. She doesn't spend long in there, so for me at least, it would be nice if she would just wait a few *&%**&% minutes. I heard, or didn't hear(?) that there would be some kind of new law/something passed that would require the closing of restrooms to clean? Maybe I am just making things up...

What'd be really great is if they could - and this is going to sound crazy - do the cleaning after school hours. That way they're free to clean without interruption from students or faculty, and said students and faculty won't have to worry about needing to use the restroom only to find it closed for cleaning. I might just be misremembering, but I'm reasonably certain that's how most of the schools I attended did things.

Nah, I think you recall correctly.  I feel like most of the schools I went to had the main cleaning done at night. 

Here, I imagine they don't want to keep the schools open after regular hours, so maybe that's why cleaning is done during the day?  Or maybe they think ajummas should have evenings off for family or whatever. 

Side note, in elementary school there was a janitor named Kaspar.  He was German and the coolest.

the cleaning ladies at my school seem to think the best time to clean the bathrooms is in the 10 minute break between classes - when everyone wants to use the restrooms.

i mean seriously, you've got 40 minutes while class is going on to clean the bathrooms and decide to do it during the break time?

and thus begin the bi-yearly cries of "kobayashi teacher, i don't think the materials you wanted for camp will arrive in time".

why ask me to submit the order form 3 weeks in advance if you're going to order everything two days before camp starts and just pray that it arrives?

good thing i'm used to this and basically plan all my camps as if there's no budget, and then just add things in on the off chance my materials actually arrive.
