I had a kind of terrible day. Probably, just being so tired from yesterday, I wasn't at my peak. I had some issues with feeling adequate to managing my classrooms, and not fulfilling one function I think is important in the role of teacher-as-moderator: preventing kids from being unkind to each other.
Anyway, prior to those bad classes, I had a kind of good moment: a former student from 2008 stopped by. That was a time when I was working for Curt, and with Grace, at LinguaForum, in a location about a block away from where I work now. Juyeong was in 6th grade then. Now he's starting university at Yonsei (which is, arguably, "Korea's Harvard"). So I felt proud to see him.
Here's a "reunion" picture from today, with Grace, Curt, Juyeong and me.
Here's a picture reposted from my blog from 2008 in which Juyeong plays the role of befuddled 6th grader, on the right, while I go psycho with a plastc alligator.
