In my family, there are four members, my farther, my mother, my sister and I. My parents are workers, my father works very hard, and he is always fully occupied, so most of the housework is done by my mother, of course, while I am at home, I would help her. I love my parents and they love me, too. When I make a success, they are more excited than me, and support me to do better. Even though I failed, instead of blaming, they always share sorrow with me, and encourage me not to give up. During my preparation for the teacher recruitment, the support from my family is always my momentum. Parents’ love is unselfish, I am deeply affected, so I will do all what I can to repay them. That is what a teacher also needs, If I had a chance to be a teacher, I would teach and care my students unselfishly.
