Monday morning, I taught my first five classes. My main (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) school is co-ed, but the classes are gender segregated. I taught three classes of boys and two classes of girls. My first week of lessons is just an “about me” introduction, a brief speaking exercise, and a game. I opened the floor for questions after the introduction, and every class asked my age (which is totally normal in Korean culture) and my height. And every class gasped when I said 178 cm.
Halfway through the day, a couple of girls giggled into the office and I received a really sweet letter/request to be teacher's pet(?)
I'm not sure if she's questioning her spelling or my hair color. Anyway, I survived.
