2010 Teacher of the Year

UPDATE: Korea Times profiled me on Wed, Jan. 5, 2011, click here.

Just to make it official, I had to go in to school today for the final faculty meeting and a free (delicious) lunch. I was one of five NSETs (Native Speaker English Teachers) in Seoul to receive the award.

It snowed again last night,so there was a fresh coat of snow on everything. Here are two views out of my classroom window:

i would ask you to invite the other four award winners to our next dinner, but maybe there would be too much intelligence at one table... but, maybe you should invite them to join your trivia team!

That's fantastic, my friend. You are one deserving chap.

And as it turns-out, I know two of the others as well. 3 out of 4 ain't bad. I clearly know how to pick 'em.

Stephen,

Congratulations.

If you look below your name on the award, you will see you are number 49.

I am number 27 out of the more than 50 teachers that received one of these awards.

Who told you that there were only 5 awards given?

50 out of 1,000...1 out of 20...
kind of a bummer, but receiving the bonus was nice.

Pop, congrats to you too. Who told me? My principal, the English dept chair, and co-teacher--I asked severally, five in high schools, five in nam-bu, etc?

Anyway, I'm the only one who got a big half-page profile in the Korea Times, so there is that...
