A motto is a sentence or a phrase1.can inspire us especially when we are faced with difficulties. Many of us have our mottoes, such as “Where there is a will, there is a way.” or “Nothing is difficult if you put your heart into it.”, and so on. My motto is “God helps those who help themselves” Sometimes I am lazy and don’t want to make efforts to work hard, but the moment I think of my motto I will get energetic again and devote myself to what I am doing. I write my motto where I can see it easily. Every time I fail in my exam and begin to lose heart, the sight of my motto inspires me with much confidence. My motto also makes me become an independent person. That is to say, I won’t rely on others easily.

First, in short term, I would spend some time to get familiar with my students, my colleagues, my teaching content and so on, in other words, to get familiar with the person I am going to face and things I am going to do. While In the long term, I should learn hard and improve myself. I can learn from some experienced teachers, from books and from students. Try to be a teacher that can undertake the hard, tough teaching tasks, even be one that can get involved in the research and development of textbook. I hope you honorable judges can give me a chance.
