Damn it Feels Good to be a Kindergartener

Over the past year (and just a note: February 20th marks my first Korean anniversary – tempus fugit, memento mori) I’ve noticed a common reaction amongst my friends whenever  I tell them what I’m up to these days. “You’re teaching kindergarten?” they gush. “Awwwww!”

There’s an assumption, you see, that kindergarten students are all adorable little miracles, doe-eyed and innocent, full of life and wonder. Yeeeeeah. It’s really not like that. Truth is, kindergarteners are thugs.

 

I kid, I kid. These pics — featuring my teaching partner, Young Na, whom I will miss like crazy when we get our new class assignments in March — are really just a hip-hop take on the classic Korean peace sign hand gesture. (Koreans instinctively make peace signs whenever they have their pictures taken.)

 

Hope all you thugs and peaceniks are having a good day. 🙂
