Korean Kids are soooooooooo Kute!

So, at the branch I work at, I see kids go up and down the stairwell daily.  I don’t teach as much because I’m finally able to my work as a Director in our company.  However, when I look at them sometimes I think to myself, “Wow, these are very unattractive kids.”  Nevertheless, I do substitute once in a while & did today and yesterday.  Today, for example, I thought the same exact thought before I walked into class because two kids were fighting — both hitting each other on the top of each others’ heads.  I thought to myself, “These kids are going to be a pain…”  Continue reading
