I Landed A Job As An EPIK Teacher

It’s official. I’m an EPIK TEFL teacher 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.

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.

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.

I must get back to Wasu life…

Until next time!
