Inspiring teacher creates a greeting from the heart for each child who enters her classroom

July 31st, 2020

Children deserve compassionate and innovative teachers to help them develop. When kids have a positive environment it enhances the way they learn. With that being said, it all starts with a teacher’s ability to connect with their students. It’s the little things that teachers do that go a long way in the hearts of their students.

This phenomenal teacher came up with a unique way to greet her students, making each individual feel special! Back when school was in session, teachers got word of the special greeting trend. Right when students line up to enter their classroom their teachers are at the door ready to greet each student one by one.

But what made this greeting stand out is the wall right beside the classroom door which has a heart, hand, and music sign that each student gets to tap and choose how they want to be greeted by their teacher! The heart symbolizes a hug while the hand symbol stands for a cool handshake and the music sign symbolizes a little dance.

The Thought That Counts

This simple gesture allows each student to feel welcomed and excited to learn in their classroom setting. In this adorable video, you’ll see just how excited these students are choosing how they wanted to be greeted before class. This kind of compassion goes a long way for students who need a positive environment or for a student who needs a little extra attention.

It’s beautiful to see how this small gesture can motivate young minds and make them feel important. When there are so many teachers who may not go the extra mile it’s important to celebrate these amazing teachers who do want to benefit their students. This caring teacher looks just as excited to interact with her students as they are to interact with her, and that in itself speaks volumes!

During these difficult times, teachers are having to change their entire method of teaching through zoom meetings and phone calls. When young students all learn so differently it can be a real challenge to teach through screens. Although it’s going to be a little while until students are able to interact with their teachers like this again, it’s refreshing to see how much teachers really do care.

A Small Act Goes A Long Way

Heart-Warming Kindness
