Work update: Week 2

15 09 2009

So I have my first mildly complainey post about my job. I still enjoy teaching the kids, and of course being over in China has been great. But I had a conversation with the head teacher of Junior 1, who said that some of the staff had “questions” about my “teaching style.” This in itself is fine and good, but seeing as how we’ve just finished teaching our first lesson, it seems a little curious. So now I’ve been told, alternatingly, that I was teaching words that were too difficult AND too easy. And I need to have more games, but teach more? I don’t know. Anyway, I’m all confused, but I’ll keep plugging away. I have confidence that even if I’m not an exceptional teacher now, I’ll become one eventually. Though maybe that day will be when I’m not making 1/6 of my US salary in a far off land…

When you get mixed reviews like that it means you’re right where you should be. I bet you’re doing great! It’s just that everyone is jealous of your mad skills! They’ll be standing on desks saying “Oh captain, my captain” in no time.

You should have just shook your head and said “no English…”
