Reaction Paper on “Goodbye Mr. Chips”

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

Honestly, at first when we were asked to watch this 1939 movie, I was like “its boring… black and white and never mind…” I actually had difficulty in finding an active downloadable file due to movie age. Watching through this film proved the above statement wrong.

The story line was simple, talked about a life of an elderly classics teacher, Mr. Chippings, looks back over his lengthy teaching tenure as his in his twilight years. The movie, Goodbye Mr. Chips provided a comprehensive look at one teacher’s life and love — from the disciplining of his students to the chance meeting of the love of his life on a mountaintop.

If I had to quote one line from this movie that I could ponder my reflection about t is this:

Chips: I do believe you’ve really meant it, too…Well, that I might be headmaster one of these days.
Katherine: My darling, you’re a very sweet person and a very human person and a very modest person. You have all sorts of unexpected gifts and qualities, so unexpected that you keep surprising even me with them. Never be afraid, Chips, that you can’t do anything you’ve made up your mind to. As long as you believe in yourself, you can go as far as you dream. Certainly you’ll be headmaster, if you want to.

After watching this movie, I realized that if you really wanted something great to happen in your life, you would achieve it as long as you put your every thing to it— time, effort, dedication, compassion and more. Having a dream and making a goal is one of the rare things that are free in this life and with that, we should DREAM BIG. We should not settle for some petty dreams because when you have achieved it, you will just stay in that state until you realize that you still wanted more than that but you don’t have anytime to pursue it.

Another point in the movie is, every one is entitled for improvement. Criticisms are both positive and negative depending on the way you look at it. Positive, when you make it as your inspiration to do more than is expected you to be and negative, when you let it into your system and hindered the realization of your dreams. There is always a chance to change and improvement is good not only for your self but also for the people around you.

Offering one’s life to service is one of the greatest things to do in this world. You can touch many people from generations to generations. Not all people will sacrifice their life just for the sake of the many. It is very heroic and courageous to do. Everyone wants to be remembered after they have gone to the after life and for sure, people who helped in their own little ways in his life deserved to be remembered just like Mr. Chips.

Being a teacher is a tough job because you need to deal with a lot of personalities. You need to be patient, you need to possess authority and most especially you need to be flexible as to the modern times today to be able to reach out to more people. Nevertheless, being a teacher allows you to have extended family because your students will become your children that would really touch your life and will make your life extremely meaningful.

It was indeed a heartwarming film about a teacher and his students. I also remembered the movie, The Dead Poets Society in this film. Goodbye, Mr. Chips may seem dated today to those who demand non-stop action, but as a leisurely paced character study, it still can hold its own.


This is one of my reaction paper for my Teaching Profession subject. Just in case you need it. Hehe 😀

Valentine’s day is fast approaching and I am sure most (but not including me. LOL) are planning for creative and unique surprises, parties, dates and what not to celebrate this “sugary” event.

Valentine’s day is celebrated just once in a year that is why lovers, “it’s complicated”, couples, partners, “friends” would try their best to make it extra special and worth remembering.

Whenever we think of Valentine’s Day, Roses and Chocolates always come first in our minds. Every girl has their own bouquet of flowers in different kind, style, color and sizes. I mean, if you are walking caught without even just a single flower on “V-Day” you will find yourself… well, let’s just say, out of place.

However, due to the law of supply and demand, we find prices of flowers and chocolates sky rocketing since many are purchasing it. Many would rush to “Dangwa” to buy fresh flowers of any kind.

Save yourself to the long queue of line, stress, time and effort in buying flowers for your “girl”. I found a perfect idea for you to try.
