So I quit my english teaching job.
I love Korea and all, but I don’t think I can work here for the rest of my life. I love kids and working with them, but it’s the administration part that I can’t take.
So that’s probably why I work for myself. I chose who I want to work with 🙂
So there’s obviously a problem with management if 6/10 of your elementary teachers quit, 2/2 full time receptionists quit, and 4/4 of your part timer’s quit. You would think the place would make changes, especially after many complaints, and your staff gave you a month’s notice.
I know how I want to run my photography busines- I don’t want any disgruntled employees or clients! I have to try to make everyone happy 🙂 🙂
Anyways, this post if kind of late. My last day of work was in mid February. I’ve just been kind of chilling.
I’m currently on vacation right now in the Philippines (don’t worry, I have pictures for you).
So here are a few pictures of some good-bye parties we had.
Heather, Minyoung, Jinyi.
Me and Heather.
The loser’s who decided to bounce out early and not go karaoke-ing- we caught them outside eating oo-dong.
So there were only 7 of us and they gave us a giant room!
Here’s another night.
The elementary teachers. Starting clockwise with me-Me, June, Kelly, Heather, Grace, Joy and Brenda. Missing from the picture is Jean ( who I think took the picture), Sue and Chloe (who didn’t make it out).
Our “native” teachers-John and Mark. I don’t know why my work place didn’t give me a ‘native’ teaching job when I obviously don’t speak korean that well. It would have made my life and there’s a lot easier. I guess it’s because I don’t have a ‘native’ looking face :/
And yes, any gathering with coworkers involves drinking.
Mark is having a little too much fun ;p
For brunch one weekend I met up with June and Grace. We went to Hongdae (artsy area) and walked around.
I look like poo because I have bandaids under my eye. It was kind of embarrassing to walk around like that :/
This gnochi was sooo good!
Afterwards we went to go get some dessert.
And here they are trying to take a picture of me.
Anyways, Korea was definitely and experience for me. Had I picked a better english academy, I might have stayed for a whole year. But I’m really excited to get back to the states!
