It’s nice to be back teaching again!

Hello! I hope you all had a great weekend! I started my second week at my new school, Korea Poly School, in Daegu, South Korea. It’s great, but I know I’ll have a lot of work to do this year. My new school is an English academy that teaches kindergarten to elementary grade four. I teach from 9:00 am to 7:30 pm five days a week; it’s a long day but I don’t mind. I love my students and I hope to expand their minds and further their own curiosity little by little.

I teach classes about art, science, social studies, English grammar, vocabulary, reading, and math (hands on play). My teachers and I use a curriculum that’s published by a company in the US and it seems to be good, though not perfect. I also have to grade journals, homework, submit months student reviews and check online quizzes (on the school’s website). It’s a lot of work and definitely keeps me busy. Still, I don’t mind and welcome the challenge. Many of my new students are very proficient, if not fluent, in English as a second language. I’m quite impressed.


These are but a few students at KPS and I am happy to be apart of their educational futures (for now).

  1. Sounds like a tiring job! Young kids require a lot of energy.

    What is the name of the US company that publishes the curriculum, by the way?
