Last May...

... I was teaching grade 11 students in a B.C. high school about Macbeth, Sylvia Plath, and George Orwell. The lessons culminated in intellectual growth, deeper human understandings, and the elation of self-discovery.

Now, I'm teaching grade 4 students at an elementary school in Seoul about various kinds of sports balls. The lessons culminate in all of those former things (on a lesser scale of course), with the added bonus of getting to sing a song that encourages us to get out of our seats and bounce like balls.

I've taught at myriad levels of schooling over the years. Each has its merits.
