  After I came, I felt that the atmosphere was all very quiet, because I was studying music. After I came, I felt very quiet, but I felt a little uncomfortable at the beginning.

Actually, I don’t know sign language after graduating from university. After I came here, I learned with the children. We have a sign language book. The first is to learn from sign language books. The above abcd needs to be learned, finger language, and some are commonly used. Some of the words will be there, but when we communicate with children, I think this improvement is the biggest.

After getting in touch with the children, I gradually adapted to this place, slowly fell in love with it, and liked the children here even more.

  This is actually the biggest difficulty. First, let the children understand what the music expresses, first understand what its rhythm and beat look like, let them listen to the sound of the floor first, and listen to it on the stereo. I listened to the vibration on the piano, and told them that the music is produced by the vibration. After that, let them watch the video. Watch some videos of dancers. While they dance, I explain to the children, using more exaggerated language and More vivid words, as well as my facial expressions, and all aspects of driving, let the children have more sense of involvement and penetration, so let them understand the music better.

  [Explanation] During the rehearsal, the children of the dance team were not afraid of hardship, their knees were broken, and the burrs on the props got stuck in their hands. They all responded firmly. Zhao Jing and the children made progress together with encouragement.

  In 2006, when I went to the Badaling Great Wall, it was the (Beijing Paralympic Games) mascot promulgation ceremony. I remember that I was on the same stage with Andy Lau, (this is) the first time I took the children out.

In 2008, when we participated in the Beijing Paralympic Games, I took our children to the Bird’s Nest and represented Shanxi to participate in the sign language song "Hello Stars". In 2010, I participated in the Stars Award, and in 2010, for a long time throughout the year, we went to tour.

They are becoming more and more confident and willing to show themselves as class leaders and dance captains. Some students also take dance as their career, join the China Disabled People's Art Troupe, and insist on dance performances.

  From the beginning, she was timid and not very expressive. Then through this dance rehearsal, she learned dance, went out to perform and came back. After seeing more worlds, she seemed to feel confident in the class, so she took her That kind of self-confidence strengthened.

Everyone thinks that you are so tired. If you say what you plan to do, you don't plan to do anything, just take the students out for a walk.

After going out for a rehearsal, it was (others said) that these children are really sunny, and this group of children danced really well. I heard these words, and I thought I was worth it.

I think I will continue to lead the children, discover more good children, and lead more children out of our school and onto a bigger stage.
