(PICTURE: My days at Hebrew School. That's me third on the right side wearing a skull cap)

I had an epiphany last night while I was teaching my teenage pre-intermediate 1 class: I'm Teaching Hebrew School!

Well, I'm at least teaching the Vietnamese equivalent of Hebrew School. Here are the simple facts:
1. I'm teaching middle to upper class kids
2. These kids, for the most part, don't want to be at school in their limited free time.
3. Their parents don't care what their kids want and make them go to English School.
4. Every other kid's last name is Levy or Goldberg.
