教师的故事(A Teacher’s Story)

更新时间:2011-01-09    来源/发布:www.en369.cn    作者/编辑:英语作文网

  there is a story many years ago of an elementary teacher. her name was mrs. thompson. and as she stood in front of her 5th grade class on the very first day of school, she told the children a lie. like most teachers, she looked at her students and said that she loved them all the same. but that was impossible, because there in the front row, slumped in his seat, was a little boy named teddy.

  mrs. thompson had watched teddy the year before and noticed that he didn’t play well with the other children, that his clothes were messy and that he constantly needed a bath. and teddy could be unpleasant.

  at the school where mrs. thompson taught, she was required to review each child’s past records and she put teddy’s off until last. however, when she reviewed his file, she was in for a surprise.

  teddy’s first grade teacher wrote, “teddy is a bright child with a ready laugh. he does his work neatly and has good manners...he is a joy to be around.”his second grade teacher wrote, “teddy is an excellent student, well-liked by his classmates, but he is troubled because his mother has a terminal illness and life at home must be a struggle.”

  his third grade teacher wrote, “his mother’s death has been hard on him. he tries to do his best but his father doesn’t show much interest and his home life will soon affect him if some steps aren’t taken.”teddy’s fourth grade teacher wrote, “teddy is withdrawn and doesn’t show much interest in school. he doesn’t have many friends and sometimes sleeps in class.”

  by now, mrs. thompson realized the problem and she was ashamed of herself. she felt even worse when her students brought her christmas presents, wrapped in beautiful ribbons and bright paper, except for teddy’s. his present was clumsily wrapped in the heavy, brown paper that he got from a grocery bag. mrs. thompson took pains to open it in the middle of the other presents. some of the children started to laugh when she found a rhinestone bracelet with some of the stones missing and a bottle that was one quarter full of perfume. she stifled the children’s laughter when she exclaimed how pretty the bracelet was, putting it on, and dabbing some of the perfume on her wrist.

  teddy stayed after school that day just long enough to say, “mrs. thompson, today you smelled just like my mom used to.” after the children left she cried for at least an hour.on that very day, she quit teaching reading, and writing, and arithmetic. instead, she began to teach children.

  mrs. thompson paid particular attention to teddy. as she worked with him, his mind seemed to come alive. the more she encouraged him, the faster he responded. by the end of the year, teddy had become one of the smartest children in the class and, despite her lie that she would love all the children same, teddy became one of her “teacher’s pets.”
