ABSTRACT
Instrumental to the successful running of the Xinjiang Classes are its teachers, many of whom are Han Chinese.

From homesickness, to hygiene, to scholastic endeavors, Han teacher-mothers (laoshi mama) help Xinjiang Class students overcome the hardships encountered studying in China interior, and in the process these teachers also gain the love and admiration of their students.
