Letters to Gloria "The Ring"
Sorry, it's taken me so long to respond to you. Life's been a little hectic. It hasn't been tremendously hectic- just changes are taking place at my institute. Today my hagwon owner fired one of the foreign teachers because the teacher was really unhappy here and all the students really noticed it. He was a 50 year old New Zealand man that was really introverted, so he didn't do much with the students or even with the other teachers at our school. He said that he wanted to leave after the first week of being here, so I think he's happy that he is returning to his country. My hagwon and many other's in the area aren't doing very well because of the sluggish economy and because President Roh changed the education laws so many high school students can't attend hagwons. Oh, well, it's not my problem. I feel bad for my owner though, because he's a nice guy. I still have a lot of students so I'm not really worried. I have a funny story for you
