Huang Hui, a teacher of the Special Education School in Lhasa, capital of Tibet, has been dedicating herself to depicting a colorful world for her deaf-mute students.
The 27-year-old woman from southwest China's Chongqing Municipality has been working at the school for five years since graduation from Chongqing Normal University.

Huang Hui said, "I have chosen special education as my major by chance, but I do love this job wholeheartedly."
The headmaster of the school said that Huang Hui has been devoting all her energy to her students in the past years and is one of the most dedicated teachers in the school.
The headmaster added, "Huang's father passed away a few days ago. It took her two days to get back to her hometown from Lhasa, but she asked for a one-week leave only. Although she said nothing, I know she did not want to interrupt her students' classes."
Having stayed at home for just one week, Huang returned together with her mother, who felt relieved at seeing her daughter's work environment and the lovely schoolchildren.

Huang signed a six-year contract with the school in 2005, which will expire next July. Asked whether she will continue to work there, Huang replied resolutely, "I love this job and have been accustomed to the life here, so I will spend the rest of my life here as a special education teacher."
The deaf-mute students usually have four classes to understand the content covered by one class for normal students, since they have to learn via the sign language.
Huang said that her students were preparing for a song-and-dance performance for the upcoming International Day for Disabled Persons, which falls on December 3 each year.
