THe Joongang Ilbo has a photo and short accompanying caption of middle and high school teachers washing their student’s feet as a “token of their affection”.
I, on the other hand, repeated my prank of 2008. I have a picture on my phone but connecting it to the computer is chancy.
Anyway, I feel teaching is important and do it for more than the money. I have taught as a volunteer and frequently spend my own money on supplements for class. Still, it’ll be a while before I wash my student’s feet. I don’t know, it just seems weird. I will show my affection by doing my job well.
