Happy Birthday, Dear Teacher…

Josh’s birthday was last week and so I hacked into his teachers account (no, I’ve never done that before) and messaged all his students and told them Josh-Teacher’s birthday was coming.

“Teacher, It’s Ama-jing!”

The more I teach, the more meaning it brings to my life. It is an unbelievable feeling to go to work and discover  that you actually get paid to do something that you believe in. I can’t say I really believe in the Korean education system per se (definitely not in its entirety anyway), but […]

Listen to Josh On Korean Radio: Expo Project

Josh’s work with the Expo-English Experience Project has been quite extensive the last month. Although I’ve been involved with meetings and the weekend work with adults, for the last month he has done 12 all-day bus tours, and co-wrote curriculum as well as worked hard with our team to create a program which turned out […]
