Head down, arse up

So one of my old teachers used to say, back in the previous Millenium.

And that’s the situation at the moment, with mid-term exams coming up, and certain fools ( me & the other foregin teachers, for example ) having to write the questions.

In a case of small mercies, I’ve been told they should be multi-choice, but it’s still a truckload of work. Fifteen-plus classes spread over 6 yaers ( grades ).

Not to speak of needing to mark all the assignments I set via Google Classroom so that we can belch out a mark for each student. And then matching the Thai names with ones I can actually read.

So this is where I earn my keep.

But in the words of a late great Uncle — “buy the ticket, take the ride.”
