My First Letter to Students

Dear students,

A happy winter vacation is over. You are welcome back to school.

There are some things that I feel very strongly about as a teacher so that I want to share them with you. I am not expecting you to understand everything I’ve written. But if you can get a feel for what it is that I am trying to do as your teacher, then I know we will be successful.

As a famous saying goes, well begun is half done. I really hope all of you will have a good start this year and make a good plan. In my opinion, the happiest thing in life is that we can make our dream come true. Come on, let’s work side by side for our wonderful future. First of all, I’d like to share two true stories about respect with you.

Cleaning Lady.

 During my second month of college, our professor gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions until I read the last one:

 "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"

 Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I know her name?

  I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade.

 "Absolutely," said the professor. "In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say "hello."

  I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.

  You are lucky to have many good teachers. By the way, do you remember all your teachers’ names? And do you remember all your classmates’ names?

    很多时候,我们有多少尊严,并不是因为受到多大尊重,而是我们有多么尊重别人。我常常觉得,考察一个人的人品,最快速的方式就是看他如何对待服务人员。另一则故事则能告诉你对于普通人的尊重甚至可以救你于危难之时。

一位女士在一家肉类加工厂工作。有一天,当她完成所有工作安排,走进冷库例行检查,突然,一个不幸的时刻,门意外关上了,她被锁在里面,淹没在人们的视线中。虽然她竭尽全力地尖叫着,敲打着,她的哭声却没有人能够听到。这个时候大部分工人都已经下班了,在冰冷的房间里,没有人能够听到里面发生的事。五个小时后,当她频临死亡的边缘,工厂保安最终打开了那门,奇迹般地救了她。

后来她问保安,他怎么会去开那门,这不是他的日常工作。他解释说:我在这家工厂工作了35年,每天都有几百名工人进进出出,但你是唯一一位每天早晨上班向我问好,晚上下班跟我道别的人。许多人视我为透明看不见的。今天,你像往常一样来上班,简单地跟我问声你好。但下班后,我却没听到你跟我说再见,明天见。于是,我决定去工厂里面看看。我期待你的再见,因为这话提醒我,我是某人。没听到你的告别,我知道可能发生了一些事。这就是为什么我在每个角落寻你。         

   同学们又从这个故事得到什么启发?谦虚、爱和尊重你周围的人。每天去影响你周围的人,因为你永远不知道明天会发生什么。予人良善,终得福报。

    和同学们聊了两则故事,我们接下来要谈谈新学期打算了。上学期期末放假那一天我们给每个同学发了一张《寒假须知》,背面设计了几个关于理想大学的栏目,不知道同学们是否认真填写了。现在我们来做一道题目,下面有六个岛屿,也许你一辈子都将在上面生活,请你来回答个问题。

    1、哪个岛是你最想去的?    2、哪个岛是你最不想去的?

自然原始的岛屿(R岛)。岛上保留有热带的原始植物,自然生态保持得很好,也有相当规模的动物园、植物园、水族馆。岛上居民以手工为主,喜欢户外活动,自己种植瓜果蔬菜、修缮房屋、打造器物、制作工具。

友善亲切的岛屿(S岛)。 岛上居民个性温和、十分友善、乐于助人,社区里的人互相关心,互相帮助,重视教育,关怀他人,充满人文气息。

深思冥想的岛屿(I岛)。岛上人迹较少,有多处天文馆、科技馆、博物馆及科学图书馆等。岛上居民喜好沉思、追求真知,常有机会和来自各地的哲学家、科学家、心理学家交换心得。

显赫富庶的岛屿(E岛)。岛上的居民善于企业经营和贸易,能言善道。岛上经济高度发展,处处是高级饭店、俱乐部、高尔夫球场。来往者多是企业家、经理人、政治家和律师等。

美丽浪漫的岛屿(A岛)。岛上充满了美术馆、音乐厅,街头雕塑和街边艺人,弥漫着浓厚的艺术文化气息。居民保留了传统的舞蹈音乐与绘画,许多文艺界的朋友都喜欢来这里寻找灵感。

现代、井然的岛屿(C岛)。岛上建筑十分现代化,是进步的都市形态,以完善的互政管理、金融管理见长。居民个性冷静保守,处事有条不紊,善于组织规划,细致高效。

 

   亲爱的同学们,经过仔细思考,你做出了选择吗?也许你不知道我要你们做这道题的意义何在,欲知详情,期待我的下一封信。欢迎同学们回信,书面的或电子的都可以,我的邮箱:759337205@qq.com
