I was sharing with my boss an opinion: given that a lot of parents are expressing distrust of the merger between Karma and Woongjin, he should call them all, personally. That's always been one my "if I ran the hagwon" ideas, anyway - the owner or on-site manage should be intimately involved in building and maintaining relationships with ALL the parents, since they are, after all, the paying customers. The students, for better or worse, are essentially product. This is not to depreciate them in any way - they are the thing I like about my job, and they're why I do it. But applying the lessons I learned from a decade of working in real-world business settings, you can't ever forget your customers.
Curt has been stressed, lately, though. In response to my suggestion, he just said in a kind of a lighthearted way, "개소리" [gae-so-ri = "bullshit" (literally, it means "dog-noise")]. It was kind meant as, "yeah, right, like I'm going to find time to do that." I laughed it off. And my feelings were in no way hurt. But I nevertheless felt (and feel) that he's making a mistake in this matter, maybe.
During the CC class (karaoke) I taught today, the boys insisted in hearing / seeing the video for a song called "Party Rock." It has a zombie-themed shuffle-dance-craze-including video. Those fifth-grade boys are utterly enraptured by this video and song. I can't figure it out.
What I'm listening to right now.
