Couples working hard to sow words in the highlands of the border

In Meo Vac district – one of the 4 most rugged rocky plateau districts of Ha Giang province, the rocky mountains are barren, there is no water all year round, life is extremely difficult, the uplands are not natural. Having a family takes years, even generations, to have. The difficulty is that, but on those very craggy rock bands, there are also special “nursing moments”. The “upland moments” sow the seeds of knowledge for the highland children of the couples.

Let’s sow words together in the border highlands

TEACHER “5 IN 1”

Na Nung A village, Son Vi border commune has a total of 57 households, 55 of which are poor, and the other two are near-poor. No electricity, no water, no market, life here is extremely difficult.

At the Na Nung A school site, teacher Nguyen Dong Du teaches primary school. The kindergarten class is taught by teacher Nguyen Thi Kim Lien. Not only are they colleagues, they are also a couple. The two have been working here for 16 years and have been together for 13 years. After 13 years of planting the village together, Mr. Du and Ms. Lien have conquered the most difficult and craggy schools with their love for students.

Not only a hairdresser, a doctor, the couple also told each other to also prepare lunch for the children. The children go to school in the morning with a bowl of menmen or a little rice. If in the lowlands, instant noodles is a very normal dish, but for these children, it is a specialty.

Shrimp noodles are a specialty with the children.

Because of taking care of students from food to health, the teaching days were a bit more difficult, but according to the wife and husband, both of them felt happy. More than anyone else, teachers understand that only when “the student’s stomach is full” can the word light up.

“The couple goes to teaching together, all professional and public affairs work together is less difficult. I feel the strength is like multiplying by 2 times 3” – Ms. Lien confided.

Together, they had a special home, where the students were cared for with love like fathers and mothers.

Optimistic – HAPPY SPICE IN THE BORDER HIGH VALUE

Thuong Phung – the land known as the “navel of the wind” of the rocky plateau. The summer days of April – May are still bitterly cold, covered with clouds. Here, the Giang San school site is the home of the teacher couple Duong Dinh Khoi and Ms. Dinh Trieu Hang.

The two have been working here for 12 years and have been married for 11 years. After 11 years of being husband and wife, Ms. Hang – Mr. Khoi went together from the school that presented the wall – the mural painting to the current assembly site.

Living in the mountains all year round, so the way the teachers show their husband and wife affection is also very special. “We’ve been married for 12 years to be honest, we’ve never had any flowers. There are many wild flowers here, but if roses are in the district, they have to live far away. My husband just told me to cut chicken for him today and cook rice for me. So that’s a lot of love.” – Teacher Dinh Trieu Hang – Giang San school, Thuong Phung commune, Meo Vac, Ha Giang shared.

Life in highland schools lacks everything, but there is a spice that is always full, which is optimism and happiness.

Their home is built with optimism and sacrifice. If both parents are teachers in the highlands, the most disadvantaged are the children. Some children have to follow their parents to the highlands to live, but there are also children who have to leave their parents since they were only 9-10 months old.

SMALL FAMILY AT THE BORDER

After 13 years of marriage, for more than ten years, Mr. Du and Ms. Lien had to live far away from their children. “My husband and I also gave birth to 2 girls. The 9-month-old baby had to be sent to his grandfather to adopt, the 11-month-old friend was sent to his grandmother. When he was away from his mother, he cried a lot, 9 months of weaning. So I still have a lot of milk, the feeling of being full of milk is very uncomfortable “- Ms. Lien shared.

Ms. Hang also has a similar situation: “Weaning too early, so the first 3 years I only went to the hospital. She called to tell me to go to the hospital, but my parents were far away.”

The site of Than Chu school, Thuong Phung commune is where teacher Tiep and his wife Vi Thi Dinh teach. The couple currently have a 13-year-old child living in the countryside with their grandparents, a 2-year-old child, due to difficulties, they have to ask her to look after them. So more than a year ago, teacher Tiep’s sister went to the mountain with her siblings to look after her grandchild.

Mai Tuyet Nga – The sister of a teacher Tiep shared: “In Bac Quang compared to here, the traffic and life are much more comfortable. Coming up here is also a difficult decision for me. I love you too. , you and I should discuss to come here, my husband does this and that and I take care of my grandchildren.”

Each family, each couple has a different situation, but they are similar in their love of the profession and their determination to overcome difficulties, to stay and sow words in the highlands of the border.

Teacher Do Van Thuong – Vice Principal of Thuong Phung Primary School, Meo Vac District, Ha Giang said: “The school also tries to arrange for teachers to be at the same school. The first is for the comrades to complete become the task of the assigned sector, the second is to take care of children and develop the family economy”.

The seeds sown in a difficult place will produce the most beautiful flowers. The flowers on the rock have bloomed as a sweet metaphor for the quiet dedication of upland teachers, couples who are silently planting words every day in remote and dangerous places. “Everyone chooses light work, who will suffer hardship?”. And they, who have chosen to stick with the highlands, now that Meo Vac land has turned into their soul and second homeland. In that place, with love for their profession, love for students and love for each other, they have cultivated happy schools.

Thanks to the dedication of the teachers, the remote schools of Meo Vac district maintain their numbers, the students are also conscious of going to school and learning letters. Meo Vac district has hundreds of couples who are working together day by day to sow words at remote schools, cultivating green sprouts for the plateau.
