48-year-old Tan Dingcai is a substitute teacher of the Jiangjiawan teaching facility in Badong county of Hubei province. He became a village substitute teacher in 1983.

Tan fell down from a terrace in 2005, which resulted in paralysis of his lower limbs. Because of financial problems, he missed the best opportunities for treatment. Currently, he must work with his crutches.

His dream is having a wheel chair so that he can focus on teaching and never worry about falling down.
