Jessie's Journey to South Korea

Current Location

Jeongeup-si, Jeollabuk-do, South Korea

Hello everyone! I am currently a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant at an all-boys high school in South Korea. I can't wait to share my adventures with you!


Let's learn what a typical week looks like in South Korea! This weekend, I went to a Buddhist Temple and spent some valuable time in nature. I also enjoyed many sunny, warm spring days!


I am fulfilling a lifelong dream to live abroad as an English teacher in South Korea. I'm thrilled to take you along with me as we learn more about this amazing country!

Field Notes

High school students at my school live very similar lives since most of their time is spent at school studying and working.


I spent this past weekend in Seoul attending a lantern festival and hiking the tallest mountain peak in the city. Seoul is the capital of South Korea and almost 10 million people live here!
