There is kindness called smile.
Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen!
Today I’d like to share my personal experience of happiness and bitterness of being an English teacher.
I remember, eight years ago, when I stood at the teacher’s desk for the first time, the students in my class paid no attention to me. I felt ashamed and helpless. In order to save my face, I just criticized the students seriously. I thought sooner or later, they would listen to me. Yes, I could control the class now, but the students and the atmosphere became strange. It was too quiet. The breathless silence urged me to consider the way I was teaching.
How to stimulate my class and show my warmth, so that they can enjoy their study in English? I had a deep thought.
It’s smile. There is a kindness called smile. It is the most beautiful language in the world. It can make distance no distance. “Just awake the students with a smiling face!”I said to myself.
The next day, when I stood on the stage with a smiling face, when I asked the questions with a smile, when I encouuraged the children in a friendly way, the students were just shocked! But I could find there was more happiness and excitement in their eyes! Gradually, they got used to it, and participated in my teaching. As I predicted, that class became a lovely one.
In the following days, I keep on working even harder. I prepare my lessons carefully. I use Flash, pictures, riddles, and interesting stories to make great efforts to help the students to learn more. But I will never forget one thing: smile, give them a smile, to give them strength, to let them feel happy, to make them confident. The children do enjoy the English lesson now, when they tell me the answers in great excitement, I can feel their gladness, and my smile is more sincerely than ever! There is kindness called smile. From the children’s yearning eyes, I understand, it is smile that makes my students and I get closer, it is smile that fills the kindness to my English class, it is smile that shapes me popular English teacher finally.
That’s all. Thank you very much!
