We need more teachers like this.
Well, would you look at that — this story involves a teacher but it doesn’t involve a sex scandal, a teacher putting a student in a chokehold or even a fight between a teacher and some students. This is actually a positive news story involving the education system. And since that is rare, we better not take these for granted.
Barry White Jr, (that’s right, Barry White), an English teacher at Ashley Park Elementary School has gone viral after it was discovered that the teacher has created a unique handshake routine for each one of his students that he does every single morning before they enter the classroom. The man actually remembers every single handshake and high-five.
