Some resolutions related to teacher and others not.
The first one is to relax more and try to really enjoy teaching in this land of sanook. I knew about sanook before I came here to work- it was partly the great sense of fun in Thai culture that attracted me to it- I just didn’t know that for a Thai person it quite properly should infuse just about everything worth doing.

Before I came to Thailand just over a year ago, virtually all of my English teaching experience was in a small village environment in Sri Lanka. It was far cry, to say the least, from big bustling Bangkok Mahanakhon.
