Visiting my New School!!

Today I got to visit my new school in Gangbyeon.  It's a really nice area and right next to the Han River!  WOOT!!!!  My school looks really nice and has 3 floors.  4th floor for Kindy and 2nd and 3rd for Elementary.  For the Kinder, I will have 1 main class of 5 with 7 year olds and their 3rd year at the school!  So excited!  ^^  and then i will also be teaching the other classes on the floor but not my main class.  And then when the kids leave, I will be teaching Elementary on the 3rd floor in my OWN classroom... So... that means the kiddos come to ME!  I didn't get to see the classroom but I saw the monitor of the rooms.  I believe it was kinda implied I had my own computer and maybe printer... hehe!  (update about that when I find out!)

After looking around the school, my manager took me to Mokdong to the immigration office... it took an hour by car... SOOOOO LONG!!!!  we left disappointed unfortunately... some behind the scene things are definitely going down... details when allowed...

After returning to the area, I asked to see my apartment in hopes that it would brighten my day... and the walk to the school might take more than 10 minutes, however there are trees and a nice path to and from my apartment to make up for that.  I pass a school and it just seems really nice.  It's not really far from the Han River either.  The apartment was so-so... Kinda small... my fridge is smaller than the other 1 I had... which was already dorm size... but the bathroom is bigger and everything is a bit seperated... I'm on the 3rd floor, so elevator but that's okay (except for when I move in...haha!)...

OVERALL, I believe that even though it's not a great apartment for Uyu and I... I believe the school, the pay, the hours, and the area will make up for it.  (... at least I hope so...)

^^
I'm feeling much better and am walking a whole lot... for the next 2 days I'll be at my school observing classes.  I'll be commuting from Nowon to Gangbyeon (which takes about 37 minutes and 4 taxis to and from the subways...cause i can't walk TOO much... and i don't know either of these areas...lol...) for the next 2 days and then Saturday, I'll be moving in... so that also means that between 9:30-5:30 for the next 2 days,  I'll be working and then after work I'll be packing up...

awesome!

Just keep thinking positively and it will all work out for you. There will be good and bad parts, but hopefully mostly good ones. I'm glad you are out of the hospital, and getting settled in to your new school/place. Keep us updated!
