Passion for teaching. Taking the time to study and prepare a lesson. Getting the class involved and
participating.
3. Please describe how you would deal with a workplace dispute with another co-worker or supervisor.
I am a team player. I respect others and their opinion. I am not confrontational. I follow the rules. I
would explain my view if I felt necessary.

4. Please describe some actions you could take if you began feeling homesick or lonely while in Korea.
Walking helps me clear my mind. I could contact my family members by phone or email or write to
them. I will have my husband there to confide in. I have lived four hours away from my family for
six years now. This has helped me adjust to not visiting with my family often. Keeping in contact
occasionally has helped me not to become homesick.

visit?)
My husband and I would like to visit and assist in some of the orphanages while in Korea. We
would like to see the country side. We would like to visit the parks and do some hiking. My husband
may be interested in furthering his education.
