Teachers are like Gardeners

THE JOYS OF TEACHING

I am an ordinary volunteer in Da Liang Mountain.

Is voluntarily teaching hard? Most people think it is very hard, but I think it is joyful. Although there are bitterness and tears, there are still a lot of things that invisibly move me and make me happy.

I still remember last year when we went for home visit, the children took us through the winding path and across the stream one after another to finally reach their homes. Although the journey was hard, it was cheerful to have the children beside us, who tell us countless stories.

I felt really sad when we went to one of the student’s homes and saw a child without father and mother. He was busy like a small adult, but I couldn’t do anything, and studying may be the only thing I can help him with.

 

HARVESTING HAPPINESS

April is the season for harvesting happiness. During this month, we will receive the Soma flowers from the children. I can’t tell you how happy I am when they give us bunches of Soma flowers during the morning check-up. I planted some Gesang seeds in the mid-April and hoping that they would bloom in campus in July. Watching Gesang flowers growing up, I finally understand why teachers are gardeners—they love their students as gardeners love their plants.

Voluntarily teaching really makes me happy. Thousands of miles away from my home to the Da Liang Mountain, I met these innocent and lively children. They make my life colorful. And the smile of my children is the greatest comfort in my life. Encountering them was the best thing that ever happened to me. I will forever remember the precious name of “Dandan teacher” which they gave it to me as well.

It’s my happiness to support teaching, and I will embrace and love Liangshan ever.


Being able to go to school and get an education is important for the future of these children. They live a very simple and basic life and work very hard to support their daily needs. When they have teachers at school who believe in them and help them see their full potential, it makes all the difference.

WILL YOU HELP US MAKE THE DIFFERENCE?
