The Indian VP talked to almost eight (newbie and even regular) teachers in a room and brought the sad news. The reason for "firing" the teachers was because the Koren Students are already going back home to Korea which means there will no longer be a need to keep teachers. He told us that it was a business so keeping teachers which will not handle any students will be a burden to their pockets that is why they gave us the "boot".
I felt strange...mixed emotions. I wanted to rejoice because I will no longer have to handle some pain-in-the-ass students and the stress of waking up early for work for fide days a week; but I had promised a lot to my mother which includes buying a new television (our TV broke a month ago) and to help the schooling of my brother and sister who both are in college by the way. I just looked at it in a positive way, maybe there is a better opportunity waiting for me (if I just move my ass to apply for a new job).
Joana, our co-ex-teacher who got the early boot came and supported me and KC in our last day. We had some little chitchat and dine at a local Gotohan and talked to our hearts contentment and called it a day.
Thanks to KC for letting me have a photo with her in our last days of work.:
