This is my last weekend before school reopens on Monday. With another 6 months left on my remaining contract, I guess it’s also time to make plans with regards to where I should go from here.
After teaching my students for the past semester, I am emotionally attached to them and would certainly love to watch them grow up. At the same time, I am also receiving very tempting offers from other schools. One thing I know for sure is that if I were to start teaching in the other schools, their expectations of me are much higher and I would have to re-learn how to work around their systems. Currently I am very comfortable where I am, being able to dodge all the unnecessary arrows and avoid extra work.
I am also thinking of developing my own start up. Gonna initiate by providing consultation and conducting workshops. While my target audience would consist mostly of undergraduates, I am not sure how responsive they would be. The idea just came out in my head a few weeks ago and I have been obsessed with it ever since. It’s gonna require a lot of work: conducting market research, marketing the workshops, and coming out with my own material for the programme.
Probably not gonna happen in the near future but considering how this country isn’t as strict and limiting as Singapore, I doubt it would require much effort from me to get things going.
For now, just gonna take one step at a time and kick start the next semester with as much enthusiasm as I came here to begin with.
