At a private English school I once worked at years ago in South Korea I was so desperately hungry that I quickly popped into the teachers room, grabbed my third rate sandwich from the nearby 7-11, and while carefully hiding it between pages 22 and 23 of SuperKids 1, I slipped back into the classroom. After telling the children to do some pair work I carefully munched away…
It was definitely a low point in my years of teaching but it taught me the importance of proper planning. It also taught me to hate all these people who say they can go all day without eating.

    given at end of class.
