Busy Bee!

Students waiting for their speaking tests
I haven't blogged for a while for a various reasons. I've been incredibly busy at work. It's the end of the term and I've been loaded with doing speaking tests with ALL the students - Grade 3, 4, 5, and 6. There are approximately 6 to 8 classes in each grade with about 36 students in each class - you do the math! It has been tiring, frustrating and stressful - trying to get all students tested within the 40 minute class period.

On Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays after school, low-level students come to the English class to work from special workbooks that my co-teachers compiled. Basic things like writing the alphabet to learning easy vocabulary. This can take up to 2 hours because there are students wanting me from all directions - "Seon-sang-nim...i-ge boy-yo?" ("Teacher, What's this?") After that's done, it's nearly home time and I can't wait to rush home, change for gym and work out for an hour after that.

I get home, showered and comfortable around 7:30pm. By this time I'm usually lying on my bed channel-surfing or reading. The last thing I want to do is be sitting at my desk in front of my laptop. But I have a new toy that allows me to blog from anywhere now - more on that in a later post!
