My new co-teacher is a straight-up ignorant bigot. If something drastic doesn't happen in the next few months, I will leave the school and I will be contacting EPIK to explain why they need to partner with the schools to better prepare and train the Korean teachers for the arrival of foreign teachers, because this is just ridiculous. I can handle it. I'm a big girl. But it's not acceptable. You can't control everyone in Korea, and you can't control everyone in the school. But you can sure as fuck make sure you aren't placing a foreign teacher directly into a situation where they are answering to someone who does not have a fucking clue that foreigners are human beings. It's not too much to ask that my direct senior whose job it is specifically to work with the foreign teacher isn't literally the most offensive person I've met since I've been here.
In the meantime, she wants me to teach "about culture" during the English teachers' class. We're going to have some interesting discussions. She may be my senior, but she needs to fucking learn.
