No degree, never taught at a pedagogical school, but for more than 20 years, "village teacher" is still hard to listen to. Thanks to this "teacher" training, hundreds of students go to prestigious universities.
The "Village Teacher" story
Man Dang Tien Dung (SN 1957, Hamlet 5 resident, Phuc Dong Commune, Huong Khe District (Ha Tinh Province). The name is vaguely known as a "village teacher".
In the last 24 years, this "unfinished teacher" class is not only popular in the commune, but also spread to many other places. Parents who have children in neighboring communes are attracted to Mr Dung by their children.
The gymnastic path leading to Mr Dung's class is an old green crown. On the outside, a simple four-story house between the mountains is only 30m2 wide with old furniture and a lecture in the corner.
Mr. Dung class in poor Phuc Dong
Only stopped in front of the gate, a man with a small number of only 1m40, slowly walked in the steps and introduced "I'm Dung".
A smiling gentle, gentle voice is an inspirational first impression when we meet "village teachers". When sitting to the guests who were invited, Mr Dung began to talk about sadness about his life.
He was born in the family of five brothers and sisters whose parents were party members in the Phuc Dong commune. Born like an ordinary guy healthy than his peers, but after 6 years of age he had malignant malaria, after many unsuccessful treatments, one-leg paralysis, and difficulty walking.
The path to the far leg was paralyzed throughout the school years when he had to go to school on his mother's feet. Regarding education, but health conditions do not allow, Mr Dung has only studied at grade 7, is not.
When he grew up, he married a man from one village and had five children. Since then, he had to struggle with difficulties.
The burden of rice, clothing and rice money forced him to try different jobs, from accounting, post office, trade unions to dealers, builders, carpenters … while there is money to worry about the family.
"Teacher" Dung teach students
It's hard, but it's hard work, but every day working on a man while still studying books, developing knowledge to teach with 5 children studying.
"The day I went to work on the farm, the night I went to school with my children. I bought more books and read a textbook to teach children. So my father collects children, there are still unresolved problems until tomorrow to complete," Dung said. .
Each school I go to is a parent class to learn this class, self-education and many times as a student; sometimes they dispute each other about a difficult problem or a problem with a classmate.
"Do not Call My Teacher"
Then the sweetheart came to the teacher when five children were at the university, the happier when three of them passed the good grades and got the same profession.
Speaking about predetermined relationships with teachers, Dung recalled that in 1994 a group of 28 students in grade 9 took the 10th form to apply for a woodworking course.
Seeing them in the new, Dung began to encourage them to return to school. A teacher came to the classroom to practice children. After the study time, everyone finished the 10th grade with a high score, even the one who had previously earned 0 after the training had gained 8 points.
Since then, Dung's reputation is well-known throughout the region, many families in the region have pulled out children, took them to a teacher.
To this day, the "village teacher" has taught for 24 years
"In fact, it was very unexpected, seeing parents say I'm very happy, but I also saw a burden, I'm just self-taught, no one is so mad about not accepting words. But people are encouraging, many students want to learn to help me, so I also I'll plant, "Dung shared.
As much as he cares, in his class he grows from 3rd grade students to college students, he has to divide 3 classes into 6 classes.
The capital was not trained, so the teacher also encountered many training problems. Many complex topics that the "teacher" has to learn all night to find the answers to the students. In addition to teaching mathematics, Dung also teaches chemistry and linguistics in Lee.
Students arriving in the class "teacher" need only 10-15 thousand hours. Even for many students, it's difficult to make a teacher pay.
So far, "village teacher" Dang Tien Dung has trained thousands of students, helping hundreds of students complete provincial and university students, many of whom passed the prestigious universities.
Mr Dung's books are the most important for improving knowledge
"I do not judge me as a teacher, I really do not need it. In addition to my knowledge, I have nothing, this degree is not, I have never been trained through school, but most of my students go to prestigious universities," said Dung.
With his contributions to education for more than 24 years, he received recognition letters from the Ha Tinh Provincial People's Committee for the Ta Tuna District of the Honh County District. In particular, in 2010 "saw Dung" was awarded a prime minister's testimony of merit, following the moral example of Ho Chi Minh.
Out of class, Ms. Dung began to mobilize more people in the community a little to organize meals.
