Travelling teacher

From remote villages

to busy town and cities

I travelled

teaching little kids to write,

big kids to count the money,

and make them read, read, read.


From June to September

it is summer in Hong Kong

very hot and humid

and I remember

tiny childrens' faces

with keen black eyes,

repeating English phrases.


Asrate was a teenager,

in Ethiopia,

she learnt fast

and wanted to be

a registered nurse.

She was a bit different

from other normal people,

after a bad accident,

things can be hard to handle.

Asrate dreamt about

peace and prosperity

for her community,

I hope her wishes came true.


I lived in a small, green country

on the Baltic Sea.

The country with wild beaches,

grand pine forests,

with unforgettable smiles,

which were mixed with the sea.

In 1994 Latvia declared independence,

the Russian army had to leave

and I came to teach English.

Evgeniy and Snezhana

were my best students,

now

they are successful

overseas.


Alex was my student

in Kiev, Ukraine.

He was born

just few miles from Chernobyl.

He was affected by radiation,

very lucky to get sponsors

for treatment in US.


Buaphad was my student

in Thailand

and Esther in Tahiti,

She lived on a little island,

Eden Isle was the name of place.

When you arrived on the pier,

you can see some quaint huts

by the sea.

Parents of my future students

had been waiting there

to embrace me

with necklaces of flowers

around my neck.

You could see

the fine sand,

swaying palm trees

and very clear blue ocean.


The happy people

from Eden Isle,

the people who don't know

much

about the material world,

but they know how to live happily

and how to create pearls under the sea,

always stayed with me.


Just like the people in San Salvador,

Honduras, Bolivia, Peru,

Argentina and Chile.

Last year there,

when I went for a walk along the beach,

I found some interesting shaped pieces

of driftwood

that had been washed up

on the beach.

When I arrived home that evening

I put them on the garden table.

The next day

the man next door noticed them

and stopped to have a talk.

He would like to have them

in his small wooden hut.

His name was Karl Rabeder,

a successful businessman,

who is giving away

every cent of his fortune

to charity in Latin America.


" It was the biggest shock in my life,

when I realised how horrible,

soulless and without feeling

the businessman lifestyle is."

I looked at him in surprise:

" Now I know what is right,"

he smiled:

" I feel free and happy now."


I visited Rome, Paris, Vienna,

Poland, Slovakia, Romania

and Amsterdam.'

I am back home now

teaching children...

make them wonder,

make them question,

make them apologize and mean it.

Make students have respect

and take responsibility for their actions.

I make them stand

and sing Advance Australia Fair

because we are fortunate

enough

to live in this great country

called Australia.

Maybe next year,

I will be travelling teacher

again.


There are so many students,

up there,

waiting for an opportunity

to learn, to grow,

to succeed in life.


I met many rich people

on my travels,

with bored expressions

and five star hotel lifestyle,

businessmen,

who asked me:

" You worked whole your life,

how much money did you make?"

I went silent.

But not now.

Now,

when people try to judge me

by what I make,

I can hold my head up high.

" You want to know what I make?"

I ask:

" I make my students understand that

if they use gifts

they were given,

work hard,

and follow ther hearts,

they find their place in life."


I DON'T MAKE MONEY, I MAKE LIVES.

What an inspiration! How true that residents of the wealthy nations do not appreciate what they have, and complain, forgetting how others struggle. I listen to youth here decrying their mandatory presence in school, and think of my travels in West Africa, and the children who can only dream of the same opportunities. Well done, Beata, and I wish you success in your laudable goals.

tonymac04 6 years ago from South Africa

Brilliant, Beata, I think you are an inspiration. I do agree that so many people get all they need "on a plate" and don't appreciate it. I know in South Africa that is the case. There are thousands of children who have their classes under trees, in leaky, draughty classrooms, with underqualified teachers and totally inadequately-resourced schools. I just hope that there are at least some teachers here who have the vision and insight that you have and can pass on to the children they taach some of the wonder of life and the opportunities that the world provides to those who take responsibility.

Love and peace

You are so right; giving people knowledge is giving them life and you are doing it. Learning from the ones that have less formal education, but more (or just different) life experiences is receiving life and you are doing that as well.

God gave you the best gift; wisdom and compassion. Enjoy it and thank you for sharing it with us.

Thank you again my dear followers, life can be very frustrating sometimes when people stop believing in you and see you as a dreamer...then I got response just like yours and I know I am on 'right track'. I just have to be more determined and strong to follow what I believe in. Thank you.

Love to you all from Beata

My favourite people are teachers,from being a child I have always admired teachers,you must gain so much satisfaction knowing that you are able to pass on to others[especially children]whatever knowledge you have,and the saddest part of life in this technological world we live in is the amount of people,adults and children ,who cannot read and write.what you and your colleagues achieve fills me with nothing but admiration,thank you,not just for me but everyone who ever reads a book.


Beata Stasak profile image

Beata Stasak 6 years ago from Western Australia Author

Thank you on behalf of many, many great teachers, I am just ordinary teacher who likes to write and dream...

I think every teacher is a little bit of dreamer, you have to believe in a better world in order to put some of this enthusiasm and idealism in others.

You meet many, many people who look at you down, but then you meet someone like you and everything seems worthwile again. Do not loose you faith in teachers, we all needed not one but many in our lifetime...Thank you again. All the best from Beata

Hi Beata.... To know life with every moment and meet beauty with every glance. What a beautiful way to live. It is rare to come across one who knows that the greatest treasure we can give, is to give ourselves. You are a light in the darkness. Keep writing.

Beata, wonderful and uplifting! Your life has been one of investigation and giving. how wonderful to meet another enlightened spirit. i live the life of a pauper in a monetary sense but soar with eagles to be free of the competitive game of, "Take-Take-Take!" and those giving nothing in return to the 'Mother of Life'...

Never in my life had i truly started living till that year in 1989 moving to Europe and studying art for three years. i put away 16 years working with the metally ill and left America in search...

I was 36 years old at the time. Now, i work with the homeless when i can and volunteer my time with heartfelt care and apathy.I lived that life once, i had no place to call home on those cold and unforgiving streets.. writing about that other world helps in that i accomplish two things... 1) I am the voice of those who have none. 2) Peace fills my life, a thing that can't be bought with money or bartered.

Peace Beata- your friend and colleague, greg z :)

Thank you so much for these great experiences you have shared.

I tweeted & voted “Awesome” &” UP” as your article is fantastic.

Sure, travelling make us wiser, it opens the doors widely, teach us that, others worth more respect than we thought.

As you have a great experience about how others live, I can feel from you wise words that, now you are satisfied that, happiness has many ways.

Any life style is good for its own culture & circumstances.

I can understand your culture & take from it what is appropriate for my beliefs, environment, culture & society.

It is not a matter of Copy & Paste.

My life style is not exactly same like my parents, neighbors or friends, but I still enjoy my life.

Now, I am working abroad, and at least 75% of my colleagues are different cultures, religions & ect. “I communicate with all & find it a chance to share skills & knowledge.”

Reading your article for example is a kind of respecting others & their experience, cultures & beliefs.

Actually, I have many things to say but I know I took so much time from you, so let me stop now.

All of us are God’s Creatures, when we love each other, we love what God has created.

Thanks

Thank you my dear new HP friends for your warm words and understanding. Dear Taleb80 I fully understand you, myself coming from a country where people still do not travel much and are still suspicious of new cultures and different people. Every time I come to visit my birthplace I just wish for them to go out into the real world and take their blinkers from their eyes....Our earth is so small and we are all the same in our differences after all...

Love South America, Medor, so much that when my young adult son got depressed in our modern western world I send him there for a few months to work and see how little can make you happy and often 'too much' can make us 'too miserable'...don't you agree?

Thanks my dear fellow hubbers..happy to find same minded friends again:)

Hi Beata,

Voted up, beautiful, interesting, awesome and like Nonna, one of our fellow hubbers says, "there ought to be an "Inspiration Button" too!

In the US and many other countries you go to school to learn how to enter the profession of teaching. There are many, many fine teachers here. Then there are those like you, I believe, who teach because they love it. They teach because there is a fire inside that burns bright for human interaction and discovery at every level.

When this life is all said and done, those who are remembered and revered aren't the businessmen and politicians, movie stars or philosophers, it will be the teachers and mentors of the world who cared enough to build something more valuable than a high rise or a portfolio - they built relationships that mattered and a trust that transcends time!

Bravo! Well done on all counts. I envy you!

Bruce

Wow, Beata. What a joy to read! You live quite a full life and it must be very gratifying when you think of the values and knowledge you have left with the children you taught. You soaked up what you learned from the people you met and it sounds like your travels have made you more grounded and appreciative of what you have and what you have acquired from those whose lives you touched and those that touched yours. The pictures are beautiful and the message most powerful! Thank you for sharing.
