Stay Foolish, Stay Hungry

    After the seminar on college English teaching, Ms. Yang, a 71-year-old elegent lady, the deputy dean in my department, talked with me a lot. She is 71, but on one around me can be more elegant and brilliant than her.  This is my first full-time job, and I teach English as foreign language in a college. I think I am a luck-favoured girl to meet those people around me.

   Yang told me that a teacher is regarded as a perfect person our society, even though no one is perfect, but we should try our best to be good and better. She said, as a teacher, she has spent more than half 50 years in becoming professional and forgiven. I was totally stunned, 50 yeays, half a century! That's more than impressive! When things come to me, I am in my 20s, as a person,I have no chioce to stop moving forward, for a teacher, I have no any excuse to stay the same.

I graduated from Shanghai Normal University; in China, it is a must for a province to have  a normal university, and "normal" originated from Latin which means  ” standard,model”. Normal university is the university for teacher candidates, it's teachers' school.

I am on the way to be good and better, stay foolish, stay hungry.

Your writing is kind of abstract to me, just like abstract modern art.

Really? Can I regard it as a kind of praise?

That means I have a lot to do, a lot to learn and a lot to improve myself.
