After graduating from high school in 1984, Li Peiguo returned to his alma mater Muying Primary School (now the Panpo Hope Primary School's Muying teaching site) as a teacher. Students and teachers came and left but Li continued. Currently, there are only three first-year students in the school and he is the only teacher. He teaches all subjects in six lessons a day, from early morning to night. The voice of children reading books echoes in the mountains.

When he newly joined work, Li Peiguo planted four ginkgo saplings at the site. And now they have all grown up really fast. Li Peiguo expressed his desire to stay in the mountains to help children acquire knowledge and emerge as talents for future as long as he was needed.
