Creativity!!! (pt. 2)

Last year, I wrote about my writing competition and the hardships associated with attempting to teach children about the concept of creativity. In a society where most have little exposure to television and story-books, creativity is anything but second-nature for these kids. However, nonetheless I am proud to share with you some of my student’s work, for many of them have truly come a long way since last March. In particular and if you don’t have a lot of time, I HIGHLY recommend reading the last entry.

Enjoy!!! (FYI: none of the following entries have been edited or changed)

f you could be any animal for the day what would you be and what would you do?
By: Kidist Degu, Grade 6

If I could be an animal for one day, I am a cat and I help my family by work. I sweep my house by my tail. I wash our objects’ by my leg. I clean my compound by my hair. I dig the land by my eyes and I grow vegetables. I wash my dog. I fly the sky and I clean the sun and the moon. I Like sky but my family lives in the land. I prepare food and I sending food for my parents. My family eat the food all day and my mother say tank you. I built my house in the sky in the clowds. In the night moon and sun sleep in my house and in the morning they go to work place. Sun and moon admire me all day and sun asked me ,
“You are animal, a cat, why do you prepare food? You have mother, father, sister, and brother?”
My answer is “Yes, I have parents and sister and brother. I am 10 years old but I change to a cat to help my parents by go to sky. My family can’t prepare food, but I prepare and send to them. My mother say tank you every time.”
So the sun admire me all time by song and the moon and sky come to my house everyday. They eat food. I don’t like food but I eat all the time clowds. I am happy for my work. I grow plants and flowers by 1 second all the time the flowers are singing songs. The plants’ can go to the sky and live with me.
The flowers can play football, volleyball, net ball, and basketball. They can read story books. All the time I don’t sleep. I am more hardworking. I make a ball by clowd. The flowers are very happy. The flowers play ball. The time is 10 o’clock. Moon and sun are happy for my work.
I make books by flowers. The flowers made honey for sun and moon. I built school in the sky. The flowers learn this school. The biggest flower is a teacher and the others’ are students. The carrots are chairs. I am happy for my work. The time is now 12 o’clock. Moon and sun are not happy they are now sad because I am go to the land and change back person. In the morning the time is 1 o’clock. I change person and see my family. They are happy they say,
“You go to the sky and what you do?”
I tell them all tings I do and my family are happy for my work. They admire me, but the moon and sun are now sad because I return back to my life.

Imagine you are 15 meters tall. Describe one day in your life.
By: Kidus Yared

If I were 15 meters tall, I am the tallest person in the world. So I am happy because I seen all countrys. I make 20 meters tall house and I must make 15 meters tall and 6 meters wide bed.
Once upone a time I go to the market but I see 20 centimeter tall person, so I give him my tall and now he has a large tall. The people are afraid of me because I am so large but when the bird is flying in the sky I catch it and give to the people for food.
I am the world president because I am taller than all people so I can see all people. I see the people fight so I bring them together to have peace. One day I go to world city, that time I see many hungry animals so I call the world people together and the world peoples are come fast. I give the animals food, meat, fruit, vegetables then they have enough. I tell the world people,
“Listen to me, I am the tallest man. I work hard for the world and I think you should admire me.”
I think one things so many people not have shoes. I buy all peoples shoes. My sky scraper house is equal to my height. My sky scraper have 10 rooms. 1 room for animals, 2 rooms for birds, 3 rooms for me, and 4 rooms for world peoples and plants. Then I see people has many animals but they haven’t school house. So I make school house in one day. I am the tallest man and the world president!!

If you could make a new animal what would it be like?
By: Tekieas Mulugeta, Grade 8

If I make a new animal I would make it small and it will only have one eye and this eye will rotate 360 degrees. Its leg will be 3 and it can go wherever he wants. It will have always 4 wings and then he can fly everywhere he wants. I will make to him a brain which can understand everything. When I make its ears, I will make them to listen to any noise that are talking in the entire world. Its skin will be sometimes visible and sometimes unvisible. When I finish his nose and mouth I will make them to smile at anything that is in the town where he is. The animal which I will make will have any talent which one person will have and the animal will have the heighest power to do everything then it can do anything. It will be very nice to human beings and will live peacefully with them. He will play but I will also make so many animals just like him and both they and I will live on Jupiter. They will make a new world and I will lead them and I will be their King forever.
These animals will be small but they will have strong muscles and they can attack every animal but he wants to live with other animas peacefully so it only attacks when they attack him first. The animal which I will make have very high creativity. He can make any technology that are very useful to him or to humans which are in the earth.

If you could make a new animal what would it be like?
By: Animut Wassihun, Grade 8

If I could make a new animal it would be like this: it has four legs, two wings, and it has a head like humans and smaller than humans. IT has tail like snake. Its skin is very hard as crocodile. It has two ears which like Eurostar dishes. It is very large. Its height is 30 meters long an its size is 30 meters wide and it is very heavy, by simple manner, it could be like a very large lorry.
People are afraid of it and they are scared of this animal so I dropped it by rope nd I take this animal in a house which I build from floor by asphalt and the wall is made from mirrors to admit light to see simply. It attracts many tourists by its wonderful body structure. So many tourists come from America, Europe, Australia, and other countries by an auroplane. They admire me by my work so they me a lot of money. This animl feeds on meats of animal especially cows, oxes, goats, and sheeps. So I receive money from tourists and I can buy such animal meat to feed it by slaughtering them. This animal is only one so many tourists asked me that “How you get this animal?” I answered for them, many years ago I was Ethiopia’s leader. So God call me to ask me how is life in the Earth. So I went to him I describe all of the life. God advise me to make this animal he send me to earth and he said to me. If you are sleep I will send that animal and you could see as nightmare. If you stand up then and go outside your compound you will get that animal then you tell all your problems and tell me and I will introduce new work. If you are honest, like me, you could get many new things like this animal.
Thank you my God!!!!

You have been in a coma for 30 years. You wake up in the year 2044 describe what the world is like. By: Sefinew Misganow, Grade 9

If I have been in a coma for 30 years, I wake up in the year 2044 the world is like this: At that time I wake up in the central part of the Pacific Ocean. The ocean is dry and it has not any water. Most water animals are dead and some are very sick. I ask them
“Water animals! Why are you sick, why are your relatives dead?” I say this and one of the fish says,
“Hi our brother, we are sick because we can not get any water. Not only in the ocean, we can not get any from the earth’s surface!”
I ask him again, “Why don’t you have any water in the earth surface?”
He says, “because our world is very injured by Civil war and the surface of the earth is ruined because of erosion.” You can go ask the earth!”
Then I go to the Everest Mountain and I get the Earth then I ask her, “Earth why are you sick?”
She says, “Sefinew, before 30 years I am very well but after that the world people start war using nuclear misales, pollution, bombs. Then my most beautiful forests, living and non living things, my fertilised soils are destroyed because there is no water. We have no fertile soil so people cannot farm because of this most people died by famine. Then the climate is change because it is polluted by nuclears, bombs, posiones gas and then the people died by Cancer and different types of vires. Because of that after a few months I am died because my surface is very injured.”
After that, I decide that I need the knowledge of how to fix the Earth. So after a few days I get the knowledge of how to meet my God.
Next I ask him, “My God why you destroy the people and the Earth?”
He says, “Sefinew, I am not destroy the Earth. The Earth destroyed by your people. This is not my mistake.”
I say, “My God I know about this but I ask can you help me to build again the Earth’s surface and the people?”
He says, “Sefinew, You can! If the world people do not learn their mistake than it will be ruined forever.”
I say, “My God, after building the earth and collecting all the people I will teach them but I have no knowledge. My God, can I borrow some knowledge from yours?”
He says, “Sefinew, borrow my knowledge, take it!”
I say, “Ok! My God, thanks.”
Then I take the knowledge and next I go to the earth again and I build its surface. I build the earth again and it looks like this: half part of the earth is for planting food example: bread and other world different foods. I designed all water bodies (rivers, oceans, ect) they are like roads and connect each and every world city. The water bodies are very powerful. If you want to go by ship you can adjust the direction. The ship has no electric power source because it can get any amount of force from the rivers and I make big lamp bulbs. By using that the world can get any amount of light energy. The lamp is like the moon. It has 1000 kilometer height and a very large diameter. After that, I make one machine. That machine has a great ability because I press #1 and it collects all world body dead skeletons. Next if I press #2 all world dead bodies skeletons are constructed into people again. After if I press #3 all world people come back to life. Then I collect all the people and I say,
“Hi, all world people, you are alive again. After this day no world people can do bad things. There will be no war and we can live always in a peaceful way. Any questions?”
Then one person says, “Sefinew, now the world population is very big. After a few years, the world people will become very large and the surface cannot hold them. What is your suggestion?”
I say, “ I talked to the Earth and she said after this day she will increase her size so more people can live on her.”
Then all world people have fun and they say, “after this day we will live in a peaceful way!”
After this day, the world people live peacefully and they get their food from our new food garden. In this garden food grows and the people can pick it. The weather is very attractive and it has no pollution, war, or bad things. World people respect me and I have become a legend for saving the world.

Love, 6th Grade Tutorial Program 

Books, books, and more BOOKS!

I’m halfway through my Peace Corps service and would like to ask you to become a part of my wild and crazy Ethiopian adventure!!! Inspired by a fellow Peace Corps Volunteer (thanks @SarahArnold) and the contagious energy of my new students, I’m reaching out for a little bit of your help.

 In the year 2013 the majority of the American population is undoubtedly reading electronic versions of their favorite novels and textbooks. With Kindles and iPads, hard copy anything seems a bit archaic and far too environmentally un-friendly for anyone’s taste. BUT, lucky for me, it’s still the year 2005 here—really, Ethiopia is on a different calendar! Which means a good, old-fashioned book goes a long way. It is with that in mind that I ask for your generous support in helping my school community by purchasing books from www.betterworldbooks.com.

 You may be wondering,  “How can I be sure that my donated books will not be sitting in your office merely collecting dust? Well, I’m so glad you asked… 

a) Yitbarek:  Yitbarek, an endearing and eager 6th grade student, walks nearly 2 hours from the countryside to get to school each day. His work ethic and spirit is truly special, having never missed an English Club and this year, being the first student to register for my 6h grade tutorial program. Yitbarek is a role model, spending much of his free time helping me to educate his peers on the importance of using a mosquito net to prevent Malaria. Yitbarek’s experience with Malaria is personal and consequently he dreams to one-day grow up and eradicate the disease from his country. I tell you this because for someone with such big dreams and the ability to transform them into a reality, he needs to improve his English. Unfortunately, I will not be able to educate such students forever and for those who are as motivated as he, it is important that he have books to read!

b) Kidist: Kidist, a bright and motivated girl, is also an active-participant in all of    my programs. Each day, Kidist breezes through another one the “free-read” books that I keep in my office, literally re-reading the same books over and over again. Since starting my class last year, Kidist has taken it upon herself to continue writing creatively in her free time, submitting new and different short- stories to me on a continual basis. Kidist attributes her creativity and desire to become a famous female author to her love of reading English storybooks.

Although these are just two examples of how your contribution can directly help my students, I teach almost 200! Needless to, say, your donations will be affecting far more than just the two! Additionally,  some of these books will be used to train 50 teachers on more active-learning methodologies and encourage them to become more innovative in their daily lessons.

So if you are….

Still skeptical? I can only hope that the cute pictures following this blog post will entice you. Otherwise, I appreciate your continued interest in reading about my adventures.

Ode to the Children

Just last week, dozens of students stood inches away from my face, staring at me as if I were the Galapagos Monster. They poked their heads through my window, their inquisitive eyes piercing at me. Eight months later and the novelty still hasn’t faded, I wondered. Doesn’t this get old for them?

Just as I threaten to close the window and raise my hand in anger, my grievances fade. An abnormally tall and lanky 5th grader peaks his head through, “Miss Emily, help me” he questions, with tears in his eyes. I recognize the boy’s face from English Club but couldn’t remember his name. “Come in” I reply and try my best to shoo the remaining students away. 

 We sit talking together in a broken Amharic/English mix, me trying to piece together what the boy is saying and what he wants. After some minor confusion I figured it out: Tayachew (the boy) is a 16-year old 5th grader. He has no parents and lives and works for an elderly woman. The woman is about to die and once she does, Tayachew will not have a home. He worries that he will not be able to feed himself, clothe himself, and most of all he fears that he will have to quit school to find permanent work. My heart sank. Sure after living in Ethiopian for nearly a year, I’ve seen some rough things. I knew such kinds of situations were common here, but hearing and seeing the pain in a child’s face, is like nothing I have ever felt. The cynic in me briefly wondered if he was telling the truth, or if his expectations were far-fetched like a free trip to America or an absurd amount of money, but the human being inside me cried out, don’t just look at him, DO SOMETHING! My mind raced, how could I help this boy? Free hand outs are both unsustainable and portray a false perception of foreigners, but then what exactly is he asking for? I tell him I will speak to the school director and vice director. I tell him I will speak to my colleagues and counterpart, in hopes that somebody will know how to help him.

 I now know that my last idea was perhaps the most naïve one I’ve had yet. I learned quickly that both officials and teachers alike have very little compassion for a child in Tayachew’s situation. They offer to provide a small stipend for books and school supplies, but nothing more. There are no social workers or guidance counselors here. The school director saw the concern in my face and laughed, inquiring as to why I want to help this boy when there are so many others like him.

 After spending nearly a week searching for an answer, I mentioned the situation to one of my favorite teachers, Biralgash, in passing. Biralgash listened for about one minute before telling me that my landlady had been looking for a boy to work and live on our compound.  My landlady, a tough but loving woman, agreed within minutes, telling us that if he is a good child she will help him until the end. I was absolutely elated. Here I was moving from official to official, while the answer was right in front of my face.

 Sadly, Tayachew isn’t alone. Also last week, I saw a girl on the bus while riding back to Dangila. For the sake of this blog, I’ll call her Hana. Hana, an absolutely stunning young girl was alone. She sat quietly, conducting herself much like an 18 year old, paying for her own ride and dictating to the door boy where she needed to get off the bus. I locked eyes with her and asked her age and grade. She smiled at me and said she is eight years old and in the 3rd grade. A million questions raced through my mind. My stomach turned with anxiety. As she disembarked one of the men behind me shook his hand from side to side and muttered “orphan” under his breath. My heart dropped.

Lastly there’s Bethlehem. Bethlehem is truly something special, a 12-year old girl in the 5th grade and my most powerful bodyguard. She took to me from the beginning, starting by staying late after school, cleaning my office and walking me home. She constantly shoos the disturbing children away from my office yells at them when they call me “China” and “Foreigner.” In fact yesterday, I heard her explaining to a group of children that “Just because Emily is white doesn’t mean she should be treated any differently.” Although she spends much time with me at school, it isn’t as if she doesn’t have anything else to do. Bethlehem is the sole caretaker of her younger brother and is responsible for cooking dinner for her family and doing chores. On top of all of that, she is a devout Orthodox Christian, waking up at dawn to attend Church everyday and refusing to eat during fasting season until 5pm everyday. Bethlehem is yet another example of a child forced to grow up too fast, conducting herself like an adult outside the school compound but while inside, she seems no different than your average child.

 Point being, the children in this country can be annoying as hell, yelling things at me and constantly out-stretching their wet, dirty hands for me to shake. But the majority endures the unimaginable and still shows up for school everyday.  Almost all of them are responsible for cooking dinner for their entire family, herding animals, and taking care of their siblings. Some of them are forced into unfortunate realities, supporting and feeding themselves while simultaneously struggling to obtain an education. Ethiopia is a country dominated by Tayachew’s, Hana’s, and Bethlehem’s. Needless to say, my heart and admiration goes out to them.

Creativity….. ???


Introducing creative writing to 80 Ethiopians is as painful as my first bite of injera. Creativity, a concept as foreign as the girl standing in front of them took weeks, maybe even months to teach. But nonetheless some of them grasped it, while many others failed miserably. But I’d give an A for effort….75+ students and teachers showed up on a Saturday to participate in my competition! Read at your own risk and enjoy those that are moving to the next level… Don’t miss the teacher entry at the bottom…a heart-warming favorite! 

What would happen if children ruled the world?

Grade 8: Sefinew Misganow 

If the children could rule the world, I am the first ruler. First I go to the market and I bought the knowledge of how to persuasion the world people. Next, I go to the center part of the earth and I build the biggest stage. That stage is 10 km in height and has 5 km square area. From that stage, I can see all the world people. Then I build the biggest micraphon on the stage. I speak into that micraphon and the world people can listen to me. That micraphon have good ability. That ability is that the sound does not damage human ear and the micraphon can control the amount of sound. Then I will start teaching all the world people in the morning!

 I say: “East to West, North to South, living world peoples Good morning! Today I will  start rule the world. I am the first children ruler.” My slogan is “create better world for next generation.” We can create better world by three methods.

First peace.  Now, I know the world people needs infrastructure, ICT, technology, and other modernized technology, but first war, robbers, theifs, and other terrorizers must go away. They are not necessary for world people.

 The second, racism. Humans cannot measure color of skin, past history, and others, but humans can measure only humans. Because of this, all of the world people give us this right. All of world people can live in any country.

  Then the third is climate change. Now climate change is the cause of famine and others. Then, all of developed countries must stop nuclur projects, chemical industries, and others because there are pollutants of atmosphere. Then, all of world people say “Ok! We agree your idea.”

I ruled easily for world people after that day. After that day, there was world peace. It does not have racism, climate change, famine, war, and others. I go to any country and all of people call me the father of peace because of this I am so happy.

What would happen if children ruled the world?

Grade 8: Abraham Yirsaw

 If childrens ruled the world, the world can change. Because childrens idea is really fast and best. The president of the world is Abraham Yirsaw. He is special child.

 One day, Abraham is flying by his plane in atmosphere. Then he sees a lot of dirty in atmosphere. The dirty begin on mountain. The more dirty mountain are 300.

 Abraham want to clean this 300 dirty mountain. He create one object. This object can clean dirty on the mountain. Then he prepare plan. This plan is about preparing a machine. He pay to prepare it 30,000 Euro. He starts to clean this 300 dirty mountain.

 Abraham starts cleaning. He ride the machine. This machine can clean 100,000 km squared per day. He clean 284 mountains in one year and he clean 60 dirty mountains by two months. He finish.

 Abraham tell to peoples he is finished. He win best person in the world wide award. Peoples respect him. In another day he is flying by his plane. He doesn’t see any dirty in atmosphere. So he is relly happy. 

If you could change one thing about boys/girls, what would you change? Why?

Grade 8: Addisu Getanet

 The equality of girls and boys are equal meaning the boys will be wearing the girls dress. The girls work boys can do and the boys work girls can do. In this time the boy works on the farm and the girl works in a home but if change one thing about boys and girls, the girls can do on a farm and the boys can do in a home. And this is no different between boys and girls except natural characteristics. After working the girls coming her home the boy should be cooked the lunch and also the boys is grow their hair like girls hair and the boys buy the girls shoes simply the boy can wear the girls shoes and the girls can wear the boys shoes. 

If you were invisible what would you do?

Grade 7: Mulunesh Almaw

If I was invisible I could go to America and get with Obama in his office to listen to his idea. I compare my knowledge with him because he is the best man in the world now. So have listen him, I take his idea and knowledge and bring that to conduct like America. My country and to develop by economy. If I was invisible also I can listen with any person but people cannot get any document from me because I can distory or hide it like a computer. 

 Why are teacher’s important?

Teacher Entry: Alene Mamo

 Teachers are important for endless purposes. They are the key professionalists in the world- they offer to children cognitive, psychological, and affective skill.

 Students go to schools to acquire knowledge from their second parents, called teachers. To tell truly, teachers are honest, patient, parents—for the community. They improve the empty mind of children to full sack of gold. Children gather all sided knowledge standing from their family, their surrounding, up to the global world.

 Furthermore, teachers disseminate psychological skill for the newly born human beings. In their day-to-day activities they are role models for students. Show firm stand for their work. Show everybody equality, work for long times without rest. They teach the best morals so that children can one day replace their parents and the whole community.

 The other point is that teachers are the front individuals in changing children’s affective knowledge. They change their thinking. Students decide their way. To go where? To be what? Teachers indicate children’s directions: to be the leader of their country, doctor, teacher—ect. Therefore, teachers are the most powerful employers in the world. They make children use their inborn talent.

 Generally, to tell honestly but not to admire my profession, teachers are the top workers to change the world. One intellectual talked the following point: he said, “I don’t admire the pilot who flies in the sky, but the teacher who have taught him.”

 Therefore, everything is under the hands of the teachers. The government should take radical change in training teachers. Enough budgets should be planned for the education ministry so as to fulfill what must be done by its teachers.
