This is a story of a principal from north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. She spent 17 years working in this field, giving all her love and care to students who need it most.

Ms. Li has dedicated her career to helping young students with special needs.

She is teaching students how to recognize simple Chinese characters.

Compared to other kids, it is much more difficult to communicate with these children, because they can't use proper words to express themselves.

Sometimes, one simple question has to be explained many times before it's understood.

On top of a more difficult and demanding teaching environment, Li has to take care of their daily needs as well.

Li Li, Principal of Lingdong Special Education School, said, "I have been working in this field for 17 years. The age of those disabled children range from 3-years to 18-years-old, and it is very difficult to take care of them. To a certain degree, we are their "parents".

Seventeen years ago, Li made up her mind to be a teacher at a newly-opened special education school, despite objections from her family.

Since then, she has poured all her energy into improving the teaching quality at the school. Many of her colleagues say they admire her hard work and dedication.
