Every month the head-office chooses a teacher of the month from all the schools in Kansai. I have no idea what the criteria are or how many nominees there are per month... But guess who’s teacher of this month:
Our manager nominated two native teachers from our school and we both won. Apparently, the price is a pen with our names engraved on it which will be ours to keep forever and prove that we were once teacher of the month. I just think it’s nice to know the manager is happy to have me around :).
