After Qinglan Middle School was withdrawn, the principal of a middle school in the county extended an invitation to her again. However, he gave up both opportunities.

“It’s not Qinglan’s students who can’t live without me, it’s me who can’t live without Qinglan’s students.” Sun Jixue said that although one person’s strength is limited, he can drive other teachers to take root in the grassroots, and then make rural children grow up at the doorstep.

At that time, the outflow of students at the teaching site was serious, and only 3 students were available to teach among the 5 teachers. How to retain students has become a difficult problem that Sun Jixue urgently needs to solve.

“Parents should send it with confidence, teachers should teach with heart, and students should learn happily.” While giving the answer, Sun Jixue urged all the teachers: “Through our joint efforts, let students learn happily, and don’t let students become a burden for parents. “

Li often wets his pants. Sun Jixue packed two big bags of the clothes his daughter wore when he was a child and took them to school. Whenever Li peed his pants, he arranged for the teacher to help change them. bring home.

Li’s foundation in cultural courses was poor, and Sun Jixue started to cultivate his self-confidence by reciting ancient poems; in order to strengthen his physical fitness, he was urged to complete morning exercises, inter-class exercises, and class exercises every day.

However, in order to ensure that the other four teachers could teach with peace of mind, Sun Jixue took the initiative to take over the chores of Qinglan’s teaching site.
