Daw Tin Tin Sein

Daw Tin Tin Sein (Mrs. Aung Gaing)
In 1964, I started out as a kindergarden teacher under the supervision of Miss Brown who was a wonderful teacher but a holy terror who inspired love and fear in her students. Mrs. Kong and Mrs. Antram were two of my colleagues. I soon discovered that I loved teaching and decided to make it my main occupation. At that time, Mrs. D. A. Logie was the principal and all of us, teachers and staff, had great fun going on trips, raising money for the school, fun fairs, etc.In 1965, the army seized power and everything was nationalized, schools, banks, businesses, etc. Mrs. Logie returned to England and the school became State High School No. (1) Dagon but it still continued on its tradition as one of the best schools in Rangoon with our matriculation students vying with students from other schools to be the top ten students in the whole country. Daw Aye Khin was the first principal after the nationalization but she retired after only two years. Then came U Tun Tin succeeded by Sayagyi U Aung Than.

In 1967, I attended evening classes at Workers’ College and received my BA in 1972. I was promoted to Junior assistant Teacher and taught Geography to the seventh standard students. In 1980, when I was almost fifty, I started studying at the Institute of Education on deputation and received my B.Ed. In 1982. I was then promoted to Senior Assistant Teacher and transferred to Thaketa Middle School. In 1984, I was transferred back to SHS 1 Dagon and taught English to the eighth grade students. In 1985, I attended the (ELPUC) English Language Proficiency Upgrading Course and also the upgrading ones for History and Geography. I really enjoyed my job as my students were all smart, polite and well-behaved. Finally in 1989, at the age of sixty, I retired.

My husband (Ko Aung Gaing) and I are now living in Ironton, Ohio as my youngest son Arthur lives in nearby Ashland, Kentucky. My children are all scattered now with Phyllis in DC, Julia in Victoria, Canada, Rita still in Burma and Derek in Redding, California.
