My Kids

Being a Teacher in Korea has really helped me learn  how to be patient. It gives me confidence that I will be able to take care of my future children one day. I want these children to have confidence, not just with english but with everything.

Some days are better than others. This is an experience of a lifetime.

Climbing Mountains

“You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So... get on your way!”
― Dr. SeussOh, the Places You'll Go!

I spent my time at a Korean baseball game instead.  The field was only in Incheon, technically in the same city that we were in, but it took over an hour to get there. It was well worth the wait. ,  Enjoy some pictures and notice my Hello Kitty Letterman jacket!

The stadium was PACKED!  The game was amazing ( from what I understood out of it). The home team, SK won the game!  Weird coincidence: I found out that Korea also has a team called The Twins! they are one of several teams based in  Seoul. Baseball is very huge in K…
