Why I Love Teaching

Believe it or not, but we love teaching. Love it. Teaching in Korea isn’t just a job for us. It’s our careers, and it’s something we’re really passionate about. We teach English in Canada, and we teach English in Korea as well. But it’s hard to explain to people why we like teaching so much, especially since teaching can be such a challenging job. So, Simon decided a year ago or so to start collecting clips of why he loves teaching in Korea so much. He’d walk around the hallways with the camera and get the students just being themselves. Now, finally, we’ve finally put together the clips into a video, and we hope it conveys how fun the students are and why we like teaching so much. Really, interacting with our students is the best part of our jobs, and it’s what makes teaching so enjoyable. Sounds sappy, we know, but this video’s really special to us, and we hope you enjoy it. And, if you’re a teacher as well, we hope you can relate.

  1. Loved the video, I teach at an all girls middle school in Incheon so I can relate. I'm leaving after a year, I can't commit to another one year contract but I am so sad about leaving. These students are great. You did an awesome job capturing the essence of middle school.

  2. I LOVE that you posted this video. Teaching ESL, especially in Korea, gets such a bad rap from some people that it's pretty heartening to see stuff like this :)

    • Thanks! We were interested in Korea before we came here, so that's what really drove us to come. As for our dog, he's green because being green is pretty awesome. There's really no better answer than that!
