Michael and Hanley in Korea has no followers yet. Be the first one to follow.
The new semester will start at Secondary for Michael in the middle of the month and at the end of the Month the current Brighton Kindergarteners will Graduate, and a new KICS-run program starts.
For the Lunar New Year, we went to the southern part of South Korea to the port city of Busan.
Michael has to go to Winter camp for 4 weeks, while Hanley stayed in Bucheon working at Brighton. Michael was able came home every weekend though.
In December, Hanley's Family visited us for Christmas. We had a great time showing them around Seoul for a little more than a week.
We had more time off for the Chuseok holiday here in Korea, so we took a trip to Tokyo.
In September, I started teaching at KICS secondary teaching Physical Science, Physics, and Earth Science. Hanley switched to another branch of the school called Brighton where she taught Kindergarten.
Even though she decided a few weeks before this she wanted to work her, she didn't start teaching her own classes until the middle of September
We had our first visitors from America. Tom and Kyle came and visited while Tom was in Seoul for a conference.
After Camp, we had some time off. So we visited Jeju Island, which is called by some (not us) the Hawaii of Korea.
Our first assignment here was an English summer camp. We were out in the middle of Korea away from our apartment for 3 weeks after we had only been in Bucheon for one week.
After more than a month of paperwork, packing, and preparations, we left America and arrived in Korea.
The job from April didn't work out, but we kept looking. Finally in June, right after our 1 year anniversery we accepted a position from our current school.
Michael was forced to decide if he was going to go to Graduate school or try to defer by this date. We were considering an offer from a school at the time and decided to wait for Grad School.
Around December we started really looking for Jobs by applying to recruiting agencies. We couldn't really find any jobs starting in July or later though.
