Making headlines

I’m in the Korean newspaper…specifically, I’m in the Korean Imaeil.  (Which is Korean for ‘everyday.’)  It’s a fairly large newspaper here.   A couple of weeks ago, we were last minute (literally) notified that a photographer was coming into my English class to take some pictures and write a story.  We rushed to make sure the classroom was nice and tidy and the students well-behaved. 🙂

My school, Jincheon Elementary, is quite old, but does have a nice new “English Zone” – a classroom dedicated to teaching English.  There’s a connected small library of English books (including the Harry Potter series), computers, and listening machines.  Apparently the newspaper wanted to write about this “English zone” (as well as the new school track that’s outside). 

We had to do some fake poses and students had to pretend they were reading.  And I just had to point and look “teacher-like.”  Here’s the link to the story (which is pointless if you can’t read Korean…myself included).  “Read” story here.

P.S. The funny thing is – they didn’t take pictures of the actual classroom we use daily, but the connected room instead.  This room we NEVER use.  NEVER.  It sits 24/7 unoccupied.  Which probably means I should do something to change that.
