Teaching in Korea vs. Canada

Teaching in Korea is a hell of a lot easier in Korea. At home I worked 9 hour days, here I work between 4 and 6. At home I have 30 kids in a class, here I have between 6 and 10. There is little preparation, no parent interviews, school assemblies, meetings or parent complaints. The kids are mostly well behaved, I haven't been abused (at least not in English) and there is no yard duty. On the other hand, back home I get 12 weeks vacation!!
