I've found a job. I am leaving in 10 minutes to go sign the contract for next year. My current school where I have been for 2 years offered me 2.8 ($3000 CAD) a month to re-sign with them. Wow, that's a crap load of money, a huge pay raise. It was definately tempting since it is only a 10 minute walk to Sung Hyun's place, but I am ready for a change. I don't think it's common for someone to stay at the same work place (hogwan) for 3 years.
Even though my new job pays less it does come with some added perks. THE BEST BEING AN 11 WEEK PAID VACATION!!!!!!!!!!!! WHOOOOAAAA (and a Western boss, oh if you only knew how much this will change the dynamics of a work place in Korea). On top of that, I have no Korean CO-teacher breathing down my back making sure I am on the right page on the right day. Yup, I'm totally in control of my class. I'm given one book and the rest is up to me
Starting March I will be teaching at a privitized public school in Seoul. I'm in charge of grades 4 through 6, should be challenging!!!
