It's been a while since I've shared my thoughts on the pedagogy and implications of my work, having focused so much on my EPIK Experiences "guidebook" sort-of series. But as I prepare for my last six months in EPIK, I've lately felt the need to reevaluate my philosophy as an educator. This need is especially poignant after speaking with other teachers here in Korea--my Korean coteachers, the novice ELT, university professors, slacking soju enthusiasts, and the sincere teacher who wants to do their best. What is my role as an EPIK teacher, and what goals can I put in place to make my work here worthwhile?
