I landed in Korea 2 weeks ago. Upon our arrival we moved into Jeong Ju University for a 10 orientation program before moving onto our specific placements. I made it through the lectures, extreme heat and I am now starting to settle in in Busan...despite some hiccups along the way. I am teaching English at Seongnam Elementry School in the Namgu Busan region - it has a beautiful ocean view. When I walked into my classroom for the first time the kids stood up and just yelled "foreigner foreigner" which, I suppose I am. My principal’s first impression of me was that I have long legs and blue eyes, an anomaly over here. Anyway, tomorrow I will be leading a lesson on me, where I am from, my family and hobbies. Stay tuned!
