Children 002Jjang for lunch is a messy business.

Children 005Children 006Good thing it’s delicious!

Teacher’s Day was on Friday. While it’s not a day off of school, it is a day filled with many gifts for teachers. Too many gifts! I was showered with a lot of amazing presents from my kids (honestly, their parents) and I feel really lucky. Chanel lipgloss, a gold-plated lipstick that looks more fit for a museum exhibit than my purse, a hand-painted leather wallet, a homemade keychain, a silver and diamond Disney keychain, spa candles and incense, expensive tea-wow. The pros of working at a hogwan for the children of rich Koreans are really becoming apparent. On the non-material end of things, the kids were fantastic. They made me a giant card filled with declarations of love and pictures. I teared up a little. It was a lovely day.

    So now you see why I am a teacher, although I don’t recall all the nice swag in my days at C-town. I am enjoying reading of your adventures, it reminds me of some of mine when I first started.
