So the last week has been incredibly busy at school - preparing for the new students, saying goodbye to the old ones.
But it's all over. The new semester has officially begun and everything is going smoothly (and by smoothly, I mean to say - we haven't received all our textbooks from the supplier and I found out I have another student starting tomorrow -just as I was about to go home tonight...but other then that - things are going smoothly).

Today was our entrance ceremony which means that I got to meet all of my Kindi students and their parents for a few hours, sing some songs and eat some food. Everyone is excited to start class tomorrow (although we have no books , so it looks like more games and perhaps some coloring...the new classroom can always use more decorations).

Besides school , I am now over my 3 week-long cold and feeling better then ever. Even despite an unexpected snowfall today, my spirits are high. Hopefully the good times keep rolling on.
Stay tuned.

Hi Colleen,

Your blog is great. It's clear that you're getting a lot out of your experience in Korea; it's a cool that you get to share your experiences with others.

My name is Blake (I live in Brooklyn), and I started a small company that creates educational music, specifically hip-hop music. It's called Flocabulary. We just completed an interesting project with a small Korean company called Swagger Lou Press to create Korean-themed hip-hop. We produced a song called "Ahn Nyeong Ha Sam" that is full of references to Korean culture. We've put the song on our site as a free download. You can listen here.

If you like the song, I was hoping you might be able to mention it in your blog. (I'm trying to make Flocabulary my full time job - your efforts would help).

Thanks Colleen. Definitely let me know if you have any questions.
