Success and Teachers

吕锦森

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen,

     First, I'd like to share with you an American movie, which was released in 1988. Yes, as far back as 1988. Too old to be appreciated?  No.

     Jaime Escalante was a mathematics teacher in a Hispanic neighborhood. All the students there were immigrants from Latin America. They were poor at learning for knowing little English. What they could do was waste time during their school years, since they regarded themselves as no-hopers.

     But Jaime Escalante didn't want to kill his time. He convinced himself that the students could make their way to universities by hard work.

     He did all he could to motivate and attract his students to his classes, playing gang members, dressing himself different costumes, and so on. He bought books and spent his weekends teaching them calculus. At first, they didn't believe that they would succeed. As time went on and with Jaime Escalante's endless encouragement, they came to realize that they had really made progress step by step. Guess what? Eight students of the class passed the examination and were accepted by universities, which had never been the case before! The second year, 15 students. Then more and more students went to university with the help of Jaime Escalante. Jaime Escalante achieved great miracles, so did his students. All together, he managed to send more than 400 students for further study.

     Whether a person can succeed or not doesn't depend on what background he comes from, nor how intelligent he is. It is the right circumstances, or exactly the teachers that help them make it, as has been proved by Jaime Escalante.

     You are so lucky, guys, to have been chosen to study here in Guohua Memorial Middle School, where of course the staff are so excellent. If not the top teachers in the world, they are at least the most responsible and diligent ones. They are generous to spend their lives here with you, more than 10 hours a day and more than six days a week! They are committed to the sacred cause here in response to Mr. Yang Guoqiang's vow of making best education accessible to every smart student from the less favored walks of society. And we have also, as Jaime Escalante had done, made great achievements, sending all the graduates to universities, over 60% to the two-top universities!

     To sum up, every society offers a way to high quality life only by good education. And you, guys, certainly owe your promising future to Mr. Yang as well as the wonderful staff here!

     That's all my story. Thank you.

Self-confidence

高三(2)班  学生

Good morning, my dear teachers and fellow students,

I am glad to stand here to give you a speech. The topic I want to share with you is self-confidence.

It’s generally accepted that confidence plays a very vital role in one’s life. If you want to do something well, you must have faith in yourself. Otherwise, you may hardly do anything right. Some people love to complain how incapable they are or how difficult their tasks are, they never think about the problem in themselves, which is lack of confidence. If they fail, they will refuse to have another try. Then they will never ever have the chance to overcome difficulties.

There are several reasons why people feel no confidence about themselves when they meet the challenges. First of all, they underestimate themselves. Second, they tend to overestimate the problems that in front of them. Last but not least, they are afraid of losing their face or making terrible mistakes if they fail.

There are many ways for us to build up self-confidence. Emerson used to say: “Self-trust is the first secret of success.” Before we do something, we should make full preparations and try to encourage ourselves that we will succeed. If we fail, don’t be afraid, try again or turn to others for help. If we can overcome the adversities this time, then we will gain some confidence. Step by step, we would become more and more confident. We should have a right attitude toward our abilities and should never look down upon ourselves. The chief thing to remember is: failure is the mother of success.

That’s all! Thank you!
