Instrumental to the successful running of the Xinjiang Classes are its teachers, many of whom are Han Chinese. This article explores the important roles teachers of the Xinjiang Class play in the lives of Xinjiang Class students inside and outside of the classroom. 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.
