We only have 3 weeks left which leads me to going through piles of throw-away papers. I found this gem in the stack. When I was working at the Korean school they had an art project where they made signs for the bathrooms. The signs were filled with happy poops and pees.
Just for fun here are the 3 kiddos I tutored after school.
And my ridiculous 1st graders
Just to clear up any misconceptions about what Jake and I are doing in the Philippines. Jake is over seeing his companies offshore operations over here and I came along for the ride. Jake is NOT teaching English. I other the hand did teach English at a Korean school for about 5 months and then got a legitimate teaching job at International School Manila. There is not a demand for English teachers in the Philippines as English is nationally recognized as a first language along with Tagalog.
Just a little tid bit about international schools. International schools are found all over the world and are accredited educational settings. I.S. are pretty much private schools found all over the world and have tons of funding, amazing resources/curriculums and exceptional staff. Teachers are from all over the world and are actually trained teachers and must have teaching experience. It is a completely different profession than your typical nomadic English teacher found in Asia. Most I.S. tuitions range from 15-25,000 USD. Not cheap. Being an international teacher is the only way to go if you are a teacher by trade. I don’t ever want to work in public schools after my experience at International School Manila. I can not say the same about my experience at the Korean school.
