I am smart|من با هوشم


 

A third-grade teacher was on medical break for a few months. A new substitute teacher walked into the class.

 

The substitute teacher continued the class like other normal days.

In every subject, he realized one of the students was slower and lacked self-confidence, causing his classmates to bully him a lot. One day when class was finished, the substitute teacher asked the slow student to stay after school.

The substitute teacher wrote a short poem from a famous poet on the board and told the student: “I would like you to memorize this poem tonight. Please don’t tell anyone about it.”

The next day, the substitute teacher wrote the same poem on the board and said: “I give you all 5 minutes to memorize this poem. It’s a famous poem and all of you have heard it before, so it shouldn’t be hard.”

After five minutes he erased the poem and asked: “Who remembers the poem?”

The slow student was the only one who raised his hand and was able to recite the poem. Other kids were shocked and the teacher said loudly: “Everyone please clap for M-H.”

Every day the kind substitute teacher helped M-H. believe in himself. M-H. became the honor student that year. Every year after that he was the best student in his classes. After years, he became the most famous kidney transplant specialist in Iran.

Then in his life story he mentioned that he owes all his achievements in life to his grade three-substitute teacher who made him believe that he was not dumb, and he should work hard and have faith in himself. He is still living in Shiraz-Iran and has saved many lives.

  4. Thank you for sharing a wonderful story and should be a inspiration to others!!… it were a wise teacher indeed who helped the young boy!… “The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.” Kahlil Gibran
    Far too many children are bullied or ridiculed for a number of reasons, though no fault of their own, just being “different”… 🙂

  11. Excellent post. I tell you, a good teacher can make all the difference bur a bad one can be so detrimental. Unfortunately, when I was eight and going to school in the UK, I had the opposite experience. My teacher, Mr. Kitchener, mocked me in front of the class for being slow to grasp fractions during math lessons.The humiliation I felt had a profound effect on my self-confidence and convinced me I was an idiot and the fear of failure just shut me down. I wish this substitute had been my teacher.

  30. The teacher, teacher is a mission and a vocation. It depends a lot on the teachers we met on our way. He had not only knowledge about his subject, which he lectured, but also knowledge about the child’s psyche. Bravo.

  35. Teachers/people like that are so important. In high school, I was dealing with low self-esteem and depression. I wasn’t functioning well and getting to class on time in the mornings was very difficult for me. Usually, I’d get sent to the office to get a late slip, and then I’d end up in detention after school. I felt trapped in a cycle and very alone. I had one teacher who actually stopped and asked me if I was okay one day. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated someone seeing me struggling to begin with, and more than that showing concern. That really meant a lot to me, and I still think about it now, years later.
