Shannon 선생님 (tales from the past)
Yesterday, I thought I heard my name being called a lot. Sure enough, the first graders had remembered my name from Friday (they might've even asked Teacher Nam where I was on Monday... a story for later)! They would tell each other my name and title... Shannon 선생님 (seonsaengnim ...teacher).... repeating it to themselves and trying out the syllables and pronunciation. Today, they confidently shout my name... well, those who are brave enough to speak to me. The rest just stare and smile, waving more than one time once they have caught my eye.
