The Chorus 放牛班的春天
By Julianne Yu-Jen, Hsieh
The movie “The Chorus” is one of my favorite films. It’s a French story about a boy boarding school and a new teacher. The headmaster of that school believed in “Action- Reaction” philosophy which means that when the student is doing something bad and naughty then the teacher must react to discipline him in a very strict and strong punishment right after this bad action. However, the new teacher did not believe in this “Action- Reaction” doctrine. He treated his students with gentle and love. He never gave up his students no matter that how others said “no” and “hopeless” to him…blah blah…
I like this new teacher whose name was Matthew. It’s based on the way he believed and treated his students in education prospective. Yes, every one of us got some gift which is very unique and created by God. Someone may be good in searching the good restaurant, but others may be good in cooking. Someone maybe good in studying but others may be good in shopping. Moreover, people need to be encouraged by one another. Without the encouragements we are not possible to live in this world. For example, if our family or parents did not encourage us when the time we were learning how to walk we might not just stay on the ground when we failed.
Another thing which hit me from this movie is that is someone I always want to be as a teacher. I expect myself to be a one who is not really a teacher for teaching but a one who can really touch lives and pass the love from God to the students. I know that I am still far away to go. However, I really hope that one day all the students who I had ever taught before can become the one who pass their passion and love to others.
