A Charlotte, NC teacher has created a sense of excitement and inspiration among his students by inventing individual handshakes with each of them.
Some are more salutes or spins than literal handshakes, but each student has created their own sepecific greeting.
"The most critical component is the relationship, the rapport you build with your students because sometimes it can go underrated or overlooked," White says. "Before I'm able to deliver a substantial amount of content to them, they have to invest in the teacher."
The teacher is Barry White Jr.. He teaches at Ashley Park Elementary School, a Title I institution that encourages teachers to find creative ways to engage with their students.
This definitely hits the mark.
