Ring! Ring! Ring! It was early in the morning and I knew who was 41 as I reached for the telephone. I was a new substitute teacher(代课教师) trying to earn enough money to 42 my family. Each morning, I 43 for a call that would take me to a different classroom. The last three classes had all been determined to 44 me and see just how much bad behavior they could get away with. I had responded by being 45 with the students. I didn’t really 46 to go to work that morning, especially since it was my birthday.
Still, I answered the phone and 47 the job. My family needed the money and I couldn’t 48 to be picky. As I was driving to work, I 49 to try harder to be the best teacher that I could be.
As the class started, the students 50 tried to see what they could get away with. This time, though, I was 51 but fair with them. I did my best to make my lessons 52 . I shared smiles, praised their efforts, and encouraged them to work hard.
The results were 53 . My unruly (难以驾驭的) classroom soon 54 . Students were learning and laughing, and I 55 felt like I was doing my job right. I went home feeling 56 in my heart and enjoyed the rest of my birthday with my family.
I remembered something that I once read: “Every day is a new opportunity to 57 again. Every day is your birthday.” Every day is a 58 for us to get things right, to live our lives with love and joy, and to make this world a better place. Don’t 59 a single day. Just try to be the best you can be. Never stop 60 .
