Today John and I leave South Korea and return to our family and friends in
Australia. We have had nearly 2 weeks of farewells, special lunches and gifts, the Korean people are very special to us and their warmth and kindness will be remembered forever. We hope to return to
Korea in 2 years time to continue our working and learning journey. This year has been extremely rewarding for us both, we could have travelled to any country in the world at the end of 2006 but we choose
Korea because of my previous experience with the warmth and dedicated approach of the people – we were not disappointed.
We celebrate 2007 as one of the greatest experiences of our lives. On Sunday we will be in Australia and I will return to Geelong HS,
Australia in 2008 and I will take my Korean experiences into my many classroms. I will share my work at teachertube, http://www.teachertube.com/uprofile.php?UID=12757, and my Korean class blog at http://classblogmeister.com/blog.php?blogger_id=97161. I hope to work with more schools on wikis in 2008 and develop projects such as this year at http://thefourcornersclassroom.wikispaces.com/. My photo collection at http://picasaweb.google.com/home will be used extensively next year and my portaportal will be invaluable in remembering all of my resources, http://guest.portaportal.com/gailatschool.
Goodbye Korea and thank you
