Preparing for a New Semester at ChungDahm

Posted on Tue, Nov 25, 2014 @ 09:42 AM

ChungDahm calendars are divided into 4 semesters. There are Summer, Spring, Winter and Fall semesters that generally consist of 13 weeks. During these semesters plenty of things are going on, such as Winter and Summer Intensive schedules. Semesters come and go pretty quickly, and before you know it the end of the term has arrived and you should be mentally preparing yourself for the next semester. Unlike most school terms, ChungDahm does not have breaks in-between semesters, so for any ChungDahm teacher the beginning of each new semester is stressful and fast-paced. You have to adjust to a winding down environment and then to a brand new starting environment. It takes a lot of mental preparation and classroom prepping to become accustomed to this environment.
