Nostalgia # 27 - Teaching is Fun

Below are the photos of my experience being a teacher at a local Korean elementary school. It is part of the U.S. Navy's Community Relations Program which is sponsored by the base chapel. I volunteer my time so that I can help the kids, let them get familiar with American style English speaking, and because I want to get involved in the community.
I didn't replace the existing teacher, I just show up once a week as a guest to their class. The kids are great and the teacher is really nice. I didn't realize teaching could be this much fun. The classroom is set up pretty much the same way that it is in the U.S. but these kids work on English from the time they are very small and up through college.
The teacher warned me that the kids can be a bit wild at I provoke the wildness and try to get them into our session. The kids are very respectful and most approach me at the end of class and thank me for being there.
Join us to reminisce the joy and adventures of the past.

Wonderful to teach in such a school. I had been a teacher for quite some time at an elementary school. When my children were at that same school, I was a substitute teacher.Great post!
