I saw this story on The Today Show and was so inspired. As a mother of five children I know how important the role of a teacher has on every single student. They can make the difference between loving to learn, wanting to get up and go to school, as well as feeling individually important.
Barry White Junior, a teacher in North Carolina, has found a creative way to engage his 5th graders. He has come up with personalized handshakes for every single one of his students in each of his three classes. He was inspired to do this after seeing Labron James do something similar with his team mates. His goal is just to make every single child feel special.
Way to go Barry White Junior…you deserve teacher of the year!
