A primary school teacher from the city of Yulin, northwest China's Shaanxi Province, has knelt on the ground to help her student who cannot walk, and massaged his legs during class break, for four years.

The thoughtful behavior of Zhang Yanfen, 47, has inspired all of her colleagues and students in the school and she is thus commonly referred to as "the most beautiful teacher."

After learning about the condition of Wang Yichao, Zhang told the boy's grandmother that she would take care of him at school when Wang was sent to school at seven. From then on, Zhang carried him on her back when he needed to go to the toilet and then took him to the classroom.

After school, Zhang accompanies him to wait for his grandmother to take him home. At present, Zhang has been familiar with Wang's family.

Zhang said she usually talks with Wang's grandmother about the massage skills and the boy's studies.

Aside from helping Wang, Zhang has given assistance to other needy students in the past 25 years of her teaching career.
