The new contract expires a year from today. My promotion, to director of the English Program, was announced at the morning meeting. I have to do research for the cultural training of Eastern and Western teachers and to create a curriculum to improve the Eastern staff's Englishstuff I was basically doing already. It's a weird thing to monitor others' language all day.
After class tonight, as the lights were being shut off, one of the Eastern teachers said, "What if we had only one person stay here all alone at midnight? It would be very scary."
No. The school with its lights off and its people gone is finally relaxing.
