Yes, it’s for the students. But, really?

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.
