Well, much to my surprise I am starting a job tomorrow morning. It all fell into my lap this last week …
I’ll be working at a kindergarten called Sewoon (Say-oon) that is located 4 blocks from our apartment. I will be part-time (M-F 9:00am-12:30pm). They have English immersion kindergarten and Korean kindergarten for 3, 4 and 5-year-olds. I will be teaching a class of 4-year-olds.
I will be working with a Korean teacher, though it will be my show since they are supposed to be speaking English all morning. There is a strict curriculum that I will follow (which ALL South Korean English-immersion kindergartens everywhere follow … I am serious when I say ALL OF THEM). The curriculum will most likely prove to not be what I would do. BUT, regardless of that, I am excited to get a chance to work with this age again. I expect to be really challenged but really happy.
Sewoon is quite large … it has 3 buildings in all.
This is the main building. It holds classrooms, offices, and the kitchen.
This building has the music classrooms and regular classrooms
I will be working in this building (same as above).
This building is for the humanities: art and cooking.
