“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
This week contracts for next year go live! After some back and forth, up and down, and side to side, I have decided to stay. I cant be sure of when I really decided to stay or even why I decided to stay. Just one day it all was clear. I wanted to continue to explore the world of Korea.
The school itself has done things that have made me want to pull out my hair…several times in fact. I have had a few destructive relationships and a lot of growing up. When I look back at who I was when I came to Korea I discover that I have grown into myself. I have grown as a world traveler and a teacher. I have also grown immensely in my Faith. I want to continue to grow. So why not stay for at least another year 🙂
So now that I have decided to stay. I wouldn’t be part of my family if I didn’t think about getting bored and wanting change. I also wouldn’t be myself if I didn’t want a challenge. With all that said. I have requested to take the position of Secondary History teacher! That means having about 5 different classes, with 5 different levels. I also get to build my own curriculum! YAY! So in other words I am going to spend a lot of time in my classroom next year. I will be getting an unbeatable experience.
Now don’t worry about me. I will be sure to have some down time as well. I also have a few friends who will be sure to bring me out of my work mode.
I am excited to continue to change the way I look at things. To see what things I have been missing.
So wish me luck!
