Janae Has a NEW Job

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.


  1. Congratulations! Looks like a great facility. I'm sure they'll love you!!

  2. Interesting, isn't it? Wonder what new life things are around the corner? I love you!

  3. CONGRATULATIONS JANAE! I am thinking that really I should be saying this to all those little 4 year olds who get to hang out with you every day. They are so blessed! Have fun playing with the children! We love you.
