It's rare to be considered for your teaching abilities anyways...

Sometimes in the Hogwon environment trying to teach the kids too much is detrimental to your
carreer. If the kids have to work to hard they may lose interest. You've got to be a part time
entertainer as well as teacher. This balance of keeping the kids happy and not pushing them to
hard is the key to success.
Often you will have 1 or 2 kids who will learn as fast as you can go, but at the same
time there will be a couple of duds who shouldn't be there but as far as the owner is concerned
they're all good and if you give them too hard of a time more than likely you'll be removed
from the class not the uninterested trouble making student.
As far as most directors are concerned a good teacher is one who keeps the kids happy and
endures what ever wage gouging exploitation they care to dish out.
I hear exceptions exist but in my experince they're rare.
With regards to the previous comments from the Korean parent. For most people, kids have
a way of drawing out your affections. I don't dislike the bored misbehaving students I just
wish probably more than they do that there was another place for them to be rather than my
class. It's a cold cold fish of a person who can look at a Kindergarden student and not want to
do their best to help them learn if the interest is there.
