About

I have just started a sub-group called GEPIK aimed at the members of this group who are teaching in Gyeonggi do. I am teaching in a middle school.
Please consider joining the group if you are teaching here. I think it gives us a good way to build a network ... which can be hard to do in person when we are so spread out and usually the only native speaking teacher in our schools. Please pass this message on to anyone else you think may be interested in becoming involved.

oops, I am in GyeongsangBuk-do. We have a website for us at GEPIK.com and our co-ordinator has taken to calling us Gepiks. Might be some confusion on the way.
Confustion is possible ... but GEPIK is the name given to the scheme under which we are teaching in public schools in Gyeonggi do ... Not a name which we would necessarily have chosen for ourselves ...

Jennifer
As long as there is communication,let there be confusion!!! Or am I confused?????

Jennifer, great stuff and I will try my best to make more Gepik teachers aware of the site. Also gather some basic info. to put up here for ya....Hope the orientation goes well and it will be interesting to compare with SMOE. I am having a meeting about this year's for SMOE this week and I'm glad they are chosing to get feedback and make changes atleast. However cosmetic.

Hi Jennifer

I'm at Seolbong Elementary in Ichon. I've been here almost a year and I head back to Cape Town end October. I wish I had known of this site sooner. It would have made my whole teaching experience far less isolated. By the way - I have never been to a conference or training seminar since arriving. Isn't this a little odd? And I have yet to meet my GEPIK representative ...

Thanks anyway.

Hi,

I just saw this and I was in the GEPIK a couple of years back. Anyway there is a Yahoo Board for GEPIK. I don't know if it's still up and running but it might be useless to get in touch with more people (fellow Gepikers) and get them to use this forum.

GEPIK is Gyeounggi-do English Program in Korea not to confused with the EPIK (English Program in Korea). There are a few more floating around in other proviences but those two are the biggest as far as I know.
Hey Jennifer, the most recent gathering cyber village for Gepik teachers that I know of is on Facebook. However, the facebook content isn't focussed on teaching, so many members try to share information but not in a systematic way. Whenever I make postings, I always reference this site.
Jennfier,

I am a elementary schhol teacher in Songtan, in Gyeonggi province. Happy to join.

Hi, Brenton, apparently GEPIK initiated a system of teacher reps at the most recent orientation. If a letter to someone at your school copied to Education office doesn't suffice, then I would contact Dain or Wenise to get the name of your area teacher then arrange a meeting.
it wasn't a truce but the DMZ has worked for the last 50 years too - good luck. - I'm a KOTESOL Seoul Chapter member and we have some korean co-teachers come to our monthly workshops. Meeting them might also renew your faith.
to answer your first question - I belong to the Seoul Chapter of KOTESOL but there is a chapter in Suwon which is closer to you. Log on to www.kotesol.org and click on 'chapters' to find dates and times for suwon - of course you're always welcome in Seoul if you want to make the trip. Our May workshop was yesterday :( but our next one is Sat June 21 on teaching large classes.
There was a nasty story in the Friday May 16 Korea Herald about the 'Citizens Association for Lawful English Teachers' which attributes every evil short of alien abductions to foreigners in Korea. My co-teachers are pretty good about all this and I make the comparison that following the U.S. University shooting spree by a Korean-born student, the american government DIDN'T A) ban all koreans from owning firearms, or B) require all korean visitors or prospective immigrants to undergo a mandatory psychiatric evaluation.
I was using the site gepik.ken.go.kr to print out the English teaching guides(LESSON PLANS) that follow the elementary text book.
as of now the site is not working. WHAT CAN I DO
SUSIE,

My school provides me with a Englsih Manual TEACHING GUIDE FOR ALL THE GRADES taht follow textbooks.Your D.O.E SHOULD HAVE COPIES

Speak to your English-coteacher about obtaing it.
