The teacher that I’ve been training for over 3 weeks, the teacher that was supposed to take over my position, the teacher that I’ve sacrificed hours of my personal time for - he sent me a message saying that he can’t work at my company and that he’s too under qualified to take over my position. My director tried to call him and he’s already cut off contact. I’m speechless and pissed at the same time. I already had a bad impression of him when I first met him. He was cocky, rude and he was looking down on my school and my students. He’s the teacher that looked at the essays I graded and said that I was doing it for showmanship. He would cut me off when I was explaining something to tell me that he already knew what I was going to say. He would talk about how he worked in Gangnam and taught students that excelled in English. I wasn’t really impressed by anything he said because I had pride in my work too. But as I kept training him, it was obvious that he was overwhelmed by my actual workload and he kept looking for the easy way out. He would ask for my materials and lesson plans and basically, he wanted me to provide him with everything so that he wouldn’t have to do any work himself. My last day of work is supposed to be on Thursday. These days, I’ve been working until around 4 a.m. everyday at work even before this happened. But my director told me that she can’t find a new teacher in time and she asked me if I could come to work on Friday. I told her that I can’t and that I already have plans. So she told me that I’ll begin training a new teacher tomorrow. A teacher from a completely different department. A teacher that knows nothing about my department’s system or classes. A teacher that freaked out after I told him about my lesson plan for the lowest level class in my department. But I have to train him so that he is able to cover all of my classes by Thursday. I have to complete a month’s worth of training in 2 days. I feel a little helpless right now.
