As I was cleaning up my son’s room, I found his Chinese composition book on the shelf which he had kept even after he had left his old school which he had attended for 4 years. Reading one of his compositions below, it brought back so much fond memories of his times in primary school. It was actually bittersweet because surviving the local educational system was not an easy thing to do but I am so proud of how much he has achieved in those years from not being able to speak the language to having the confidence to express himself beautiful in what he used to say his second language but now he proudly say, Cantonese is his mother tongue. I would like to exhibit in my next few week’s blog posts some of his writings.

魚離不開水,鳥離不開樹,學生離不開老師。我是學生,自然也離不開老師。

林老師是我的中文老師,她留着一頭又直又黑的頭髮,濃濃的眉毛下,有着一雙炯炯有神的眼睛,看起來很有智慧。當她笑起來的時候,會出現兩個小酒窩,十分和藹可親,她的聲音美妙動聽,像一位 迷人的歌星,永遠都聽不厭!

老師工作很認真,常常有獨特的見解,我喜歡她的教學方法,也喜歡她嚴中有愛的態度。她每天都是笑容滿面的跟學生講話,有時候還會跟我們開玩笑,令我感到既輕鬆又有趣。記得在考試前的兩星期,大家的心情都非常緊張和焦急,有些同學不斷問着老師考試範圍、有些同學就焦慮地托著頭、有些同學不知所措地東張西望。林老師看到這個情境,感受到我們焦急的心情,無微不至的她,馬上從她的包子裏拿出一個布木偶,套進手裏,帶上笑容,説:「大家好!我是小飛飛,我是從外星球來的,你們想聽故事嗎?」大家都不約而同地大笑起來,班上緊張的氣氛就不知不覺地消失了。林老師真的有辦法逗我們開心。

老師不但給我們有限度的自由,而且讓我們感受到她對我們的尊重。例如:只要我們認真地聽課,就可以做自己的事。曾經,我上課時跟同學玩耍,沒有聽到老師教書,林老師用一副友善的目光問我:「俊希,我剛才說了甚麼?請你跟大家分享,可以嗎?」當時,課室裏的氣氛突然變得嚴肅起來,大家的目光都朝向著我,啞口無言的我,臉色都變得像一個紅蘋果似的,心裏覺得既慚愧又尷尬。林老師不但沒有大罵我,反而説了一個笑話,把同學們的主意力分散,好讓我收拾心情。因為林老師對我的尊重和包容,令我對她的尊重又更上一層樓。

記得以前的我,對中文缺乏自信,不敢接受挑戰。每逢突擊測驗,我第一個反應總是:「我一定會考得不好!沒有心理準備。」對於我的自暴自棄,林老師不但沒有責備我,還耐心地解釋怎樣在困難中克服障礙,怎樣在失敗中吸取教訓,她說最重要的就是勇於嘗試。由於老師一次又一次的鼓勵,由於老師一句又一句的叮嚀,我漸漸明白: 世界上沒有做不到的事,只有不做的事。於是我決心做好充分的準備,勇敢面對每一回的測驗,自信就這樣培養出來了。

林老師,我是船,您是海,沒有您的載托,我怎能遠航?林老師,我是泉,您是山,沒有您的孕育,我怎能夠涓涓流淌?林老師,我是踏着您厚實的靈魂來完善自我的,我會永遠記住您對我的諄諄教誨,也永遠不會忘記您的恩情。

謝謝您,林老師。

Motherhood has been a long journey for me. Being a single mother for twelve years, I have learned the importance of mother and child's relationship. Raising children is a lifelong career and require patience, perseverance and love.
