I’m An EPIK Teacher

My EPIK teacher life

It’s officiIt’s official. I am an EPIK teacher in South Korea! No more hospital lab work. I’ve gotten TEFL certified and cleared to teach English in South Korea.

I decided to start this blog to chronicle the happenings of my first expat experience, and to keep friends and family abreast of my well-being.

A sign of things to come?

I arrived in South Korea on March 26th, and well, I can say it has been an experience! I developed acute bronchitis a week after arriving. I suffered through pretty severe symptoms for a month. I was weak, dehydrated, had a sore throat, lost my voice and had bloody phlegm- and was still expected to teach- and teach I did.  I’m a trooper 🙂  (So glad it’s over!)

I was placed in a small, agricultural town in Gangwon Province called Wasu.  I’ve never been gawked at so much as I have since being here. It’s quite amusing. I’m a bit of star right now. The townspeople are pretty nice. I try to walk through town often to get everyone used to seeing me and interacting with me.

Not making any promises!

I tend to be quite busy between 4 schools, after school classes, an adult class, and preparing lessons for all of my classes, but I will try to update this blog often.

Well,

I must get back to my EPIK teacher life…

Until next time!
