Life in Korat as been crazy busy. Between finishing end of term grades and reports, two weeks of English summer camps, a brief holiday, and starting a new term, I haven't had much free time to update my blog.

Read on to find out why this is so important, to us and to Thailand, and how you can help.
Teaching, as a profession, is never a walk in the park. Add in a language barrier and communication conflicts and that'll kick things up a notch. Welcome to teaching in Thailand. Read on to find out what life is really like as a full-time teacher here.
