Mingda School pays attention to rural education in northwest of China, in particular English education. The School provides a relaxing and healthy education environment for the left-behind children living in rural areas.
April 12th was a sunny day. I went to Yaobazhuang Primary School as a math teacher. There are 6 teachers in the school and one of them is a substitute teacher, but there were only 3 of them on duty that day. I did not know one of them. I was told later that he was a temp teacher and responsible for Chinese and math of Grade 4. He had not even graduated from Grade 8 himself. I was thinking if he was qualified to be a teacher.
It was difficult for the child to understand the math problem. I have explained for several times, but he could not work out. I turned the text book to the contents learned before, and explain them to him again. Over and over, he finally understood the points of the day.
After the class, I left the school with a heavy heart. Anyway, I would stick to my original dream—to motive the children’s desire for knowledge with my enthusiasm, so that they would have less confusion and more confidence in the process of development.
