When I started this teaching job in a public elementary school, I was assured that one of the duties that we 원어민 ["native speaker instructors"] had was to teach a weekly English class to the teachers at our schools – to help them maintain and/or improve their own English language skills. This had always struck me as a great idea, and it was something I'd recommend to enlightened hagwon management as well.
Well, I got to teach my first conversation class for teachers today, with about 3 weeks left on my one-year contract. I guess my school just didn't get around to it, until now.
I'm glad I actually got to do it, though.
Last night, I had trouble sleeping. I'm clearly being troubled by things, lately. Stress around the upcoming job change, I'm sure. Maybe stress around other things, too. I don't know.
I drifted in and out of waking up, this morning, for longer than usual, and kept having these mini-nightmares.
I was being chased by a bear in a snowy wilderness.
I was paralyzed, lying on the floor of my classroom, while my students tried to get me to respond to them.
I saw a flood happening on the floor of my classroom, and I kept clicking on some "stop flood" icon on a computer, to no avail.
I was late for a bus, and tripped and fell into a hole in the street.
