Summary of Interview 090410A with Norov by Dejid


He was born in 1930 in Tariat of Jargalant sum of Arhangai aimag. His father was a carpenter and his mother a cattle breeder.


He went to school at the age of nine. Since his childhood he used to sing and dance therefore he was selected as the best at the art examination and he went to Ulaanbaatar to get his reward. He was required to look after his mother therefore after completing the tenth grade he became a teacher. In order to have schoolchildren in the school they rode horses to recruit the children. It was the time when some of the parents were reluctant to send their children to school. He spoke in detail of the peculiarities of the teachers’ job, the complications and hardships, success and rewards and incentives. He also spoke of his health problem, how he has suffered from illness and how he has struggled with it for many years.


He was appointed to the 55th school as an experienced teacher. Though it was a special school, he made illustration materials to develop the children’s psychology and they have become manuals for the teachers. He checked the children’s notebooks and prepared for the class until one or two am after his children had been gone to bed.

At the time when he had just come to the city from the countryside the cultural campaign was being carried out. The cultural campaign people visited the ‘ails’ for an inspection, and some senior people talked with the horoo dargas and they had someone to help them. I used to visit the school children’s homes and meet with their parents. The cultural campaign had its fruits, he thinks.
