Avalon Building

Pictures of the outside of my school building and the school playground across the street. This building is one of many Avalon campuses. I work on the 4th floor along with 14 other foreign teachers (Americans, Canadians, Australians, Kiwis). Friends work at a middle school and high school campus on the 5th and 6th floor. Played a great game of pick up frisbee with 3 friends from work Tuesday on this field. We had to wait for recess to end, jumping over the fence as soon as the bell rang. Half a dozen little kids walked to class backwards so they could watch us running down long throws. Frisbee is a big sport here. My friend Thomas plays in an extremely competitive league and is traveling to the "Dream Cup" in Japan this weekend to play against 80 other international teams.

  1. Hi, I did a google search for those who had maybe taught at Avalon and were in Korea now., with blogs. I am planning to return to SK (I ESLed from 07-08 in Gumi and then returned stateside for a bit) Anyhow, someone referred me to Avalon in Gwangju and while it's a differnt city the schools can't be that much different. I was wondering if you'd be comfortable telling me a little about it. Your classes, the routines/schedule. You can check out my blog (it began in Korea if you trace back through the archives) and maybe email me. Love to hear what you think and get a expats take on the school. thanks jennifer
