We would like to officially welcome you to our blog! (I promise that, that will be the only exclamation point I will use in this post, no one likes to be yelled at… even if it is with excitement.) When Jee Young approached me with the idea of co-authoring a teaching blog last September, I am pretty sure I agreed before she finished her sentence. For one thing, we both love blogging, for another, we are incredibly talented teachers (okay… Jee Young may be the brains of the operation, but I bring my own special charm- as people like to tell me… I also bring a LOT of parentheses), and lastly, we are excited to share our ideas.
Our main goal is to tap into the international community. We know there are a lot of amazing things happening in classrooms around the world. Teachers are continually finding ways to build their daily lessons around culture differences; teachers are continually looking for ways to work with these culture differences instead of against them. We want to be a part of that.
At the moment, both Jee Young and I are working at an international school near the outskirts of Seoul, South Korea. Next year, Jee Young will be teaching fifth grade in Singapore, and I will (hopefully) be teaching in a second grade classroom in the heart of Seoul. Join the ride and enjoy! (shoot, one last exclamation point…)
Ready for the world to be a part of twoapplesaday.org!
