(Minghui.org) I am an English middle school teacher in a remote township. My students are from 12 to 15 years old, and I wanted them to know the principles of Falun Dafa, 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.'

Teaching the Falun Dafa Principles

I spoke to the class on the first day of school and said, “You are no longer elementary school students. You are in middle school, and you do not have to wear the red scarf. Have you all quit the Young Pioneers (an affiliate of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)?”

The entire class responded "Yes! We have!"

“Congratulations, as a middle school student, you will first learn to be a good person.”

On the blackboard I wrote, 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance' and explained the three characters to them. I then told them how a good person behaved.

I was pleased the students took notes. They copied the characters of 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance' in their notebooks.

One student was a slow learner. He was not even able to remember three new words in one lesson. I asked him, “What are the principles for a human being?”

In a clear and confident voice, he answered, “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance!”

My heart was happy. I saw that 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance' was already embedded into their hearts.

Master said:

"But the reality is, each Dafa disciple's life has been tightly wed to, like links in a chain, his cultivation. So when you relax yourself, it amounts to relaxing in your cultivation." ("Fa Teaching at the 2009 Greater New York International Fa Conference") (official translation)

I wanted every student to remember 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,' so the truth about Dafa was the main focus in my class. I am grateful Master arranged the platform of teaching for me. My students are improving. I know that teaching them to be good people is more important than what is in the textbooks.

All Students In My Class Quit the CCP

My goal was to make their lessons interesting. Dafa gave me the wisdom, so I found the material in the English textbook suitable to connecting with Dafa truths. For example, when I was teaching the lesson “Noah's Ark,” I told them: “When human beings became bad, heaven punished them with a flood. God told Noah to build an ark. Only good people were allowed to board his boat to escape the flood.

The story tells us that to be blessed by God you must be a good person. Disasters are how bad people are punished. No matter where you are, you should follow 'Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.' If everyone is good, there will be no disasters.”

When teaching the lesson on the “Pyramids,” I talked about prehistoric culture. The students learned that there is not just one period of civilization.

I then told them about the Hidden Character Stone in Guizhou Province. Their homework assignment was to check online about the words on the rock.

“What is written on the Hidden Character Stone?” I asked them the following day.

“The Chinese Communist Party must perish,” they answered.

“The Chinese Communist Party must perish,” Right, I said, “Both the Young Pioneers and Youth League are CCP organizations. Withdrawing from these will keep us safe. Should everyone withdraw?”

“Yes! Everyone should withdraw,” the students' voices echoed.

I also combined Fa truths with my teaching. Students loved it and listened with earnest attention. I was moved by their reactions and felt their long hidden memories were waking up.

I talked about the changes of the dynasties and explained how historic facts show us that when a government is corrupt and incompetent, a new dynasty will replace it. I explained how the corruption of the CCP would result with its termination.

“What should we do then?” asked the students.

I continued: “Even if the ruling party is gone, the country, along with its 5,000 years of civilization, will last. When the battery is bad in a clock, we replace it with a new one, and then the clock will work again.”

Showing The Wonder of Dafa Through Kind Acts

I pay attention to my behavior every day and consider others first. I am kind to my students, so they trust me and often confide in me if they have a problem.

“Teacher,” my students often said to me, “you gave us your heart, and we gave you ours.”

My students stood up and greeted me warmly when I entered the classroom. They also wanted me to stay after class was over.

I gave much of my time to my students, with my day beginning at 6:30 a.m. My legs would sometimes become swollen from standing all day. But I always felt I had a special mission in my life. I am fulfilled!

Students are live media. They often told their friends and parents what they learned in my classroom. Some parents told me that as soon as their children arrived home, they would report to them what their English teacher taught that day.

In their eyes, their English teacher was a living encyclopedia. All these stories are from traditional Chinese culture as shown in Shen Yun's performances.

When I was assigned to a new class, my students cried. The entire school was surprised to see my students crying on my last day with them.

I am proud to show through example that Dafa is good.
