By 蔡晓奋 Xiaofen Cai, English Teacher of HuameiSecondary School
I am new at Huamei, and I feel lucky to be here. For those who alreadyworkhere, I wouldlike to express my gratitude. Thanks a million for helping me to know moreabout Huamei and to adapt to this new life in this wonderful campus. I am so grateful to work with you and will do my best to contribute to thisamazing working environment.
When I was first interviewed by the Principal of Huamei Secondary School, Mr. ZhangWen, I was excited and a bit nervous at the same time. I felt that Huamei issuch a magnificent and modern International school, and I felt quite intimidated as I stood in front of the main gate of the school. I imagined that if I were admitted to this school, I would work hard and learn from all theteachers there. When I was accepted by the school, I was so excited that I jumped up and down like a child. It was like a dream came true!
However,on my first day of work, I didn't feel so good. I realized that I am not asstrong as I imagined,and I am not good at adapting myself to a new environment. I did not want totalk to anyone who were giving me all these smiling faces. I am so sorry aboutit, but at that time, I felt like a homesick girl who was far away from home. However, it is thosesame smiling faces that touched my heart and opened my heart to talk to them.These smiles gave me strength and courage to teach the junior middle students.They are full of energy, they work very hard, they are warm-hearted, and theyare the most responsible people that I have met. I am thankful for the teachers here. All in all, you might not think thatyour smile makes a difference on me, however, it really does and it warms myheart.
I also remember on the fifth week that I caught a cold, the teachers in my officeadvised me to buy some medicine, and even gave some of theirs to help me.Though it was a little act, it touched my heart again and helped me a great deal.
The students were also very supportive to me at that time. They knew that I was sick and they behaved very well in class and listened to me carefully. They are very caring, and they always greet me with enthusiasm and the sweetest smile ontheir faces. I love them!
Huamei is filled withfragrances, energy andlove. I am so grateful to be here, and thankyou again for all your support!
