For those of you who don't know me, I am Amanda, I worked in School 31, 94 and Burgard HS while I was in Buffalo for 3.5 years. I have a Physics teaching cert. and I went to UB to major in Physics and minor in Japanese. I also did a lot of grad coursework at Buff State for the Physics Teaching Masters before I jumped ship and ran away to Korea!
Anyway, I love teaching, and I love new experiences! My current job in South Korea is teaching adults (and a few HS and MS students) English in a one on one situation. This job is REALLY easy, especially in comparison to what I was doing before… of course I work about 10-12 hrs a day here… but I actually get paid for my OT now! I like this, but I also miss the dynamics of the crazy middle school classroom.
More about me! I am a vegetarian and a total tree hugger. I love computers, video games and my two cats. I love learning languages, and I am now learning Korean along with Japanese and French (although I am not fluent.) I am living in Korea with my beau who is also teaching English here. I am also the website guru for this site so if you have any questions let me know. I wish I had more time for things I love like yoga, playing my flute, reading and fighting the man!
Please enjoy the site, try to add something every week, so we can help each other and maybe even support a larger community… at the very least this is a great way for us to communicate with each other more than 3 times a year :)
I miss you all, lots of love from Korea
