A teacher can collect a lot of things over the course of a career. These are just some realia, props, visual aids, gadgets, and gizmos I have used while teaching all manner of students in South Korea. If I had a favorite, it would be the rabbit skeleton.
Unknown to me, a rabbit had died in our flower garden; however, I didn't discover it until I cleaned and prepared the garden for winter. It is possible that it clashed with one of the feral cats that frequent the neighborhood. I cooked and cleaned the rabbit. It is covered until I teach a science component to my students. My students have never seen anything like it.
The Artifacts of Teaching

I was a licensed private teacher in Suncheon, but that is all but finished at this time. I shall move to a different exotic land in the not too distant future. To be honest, it is time to move on.
A person who is knowledgeable about Korean culture will appreciate the one symbolic feature in the image above.
