I just told the Vice Principal that I had applied to stay at CPHS for one more year.
Or, rather, my co-teacher told the Vice Principal. I could understand everything that she said, however I had asked her to talk to him because I’m still not comfortable speaking in formal Korean.
I nervously watched. As my co-teacher explained the situation, and as a conclusion stated my decision, a smile started to bloom on the Vice Principal’s face.
He turned towards me, put a hand on his heart, and said in Korean “Ah. I’m glad.”
