Texas Kindergarten Teacher Have Students Give Handshakes Before Class
Texas kindergarten teacher Ashley Coston Taylor deserves Teacher of The Year! For 18 years, she has been a strong influence in her classroom by having her students each day shaking hands and greeting each other.
KSLA report, the teacher posted a video on her Facebook last week that has has now gone viral of the good gesture at Keene Elementary as the students lined up to shake a classmate’s hand. It teaches them good manners and let them know someone is on their side.
The video that has now received over 20,000 views shows her young student greeting each classmate with a handshake and some also hugged the greeter for the day. Taylor is definitely making a difference as she is striving to make a difference.
The school shootings have been a real eye opener. Maybe if some of those kids had felt like someone was on their side, things would have happened differently.
Let's hope that more teachers will follow this procedure and who knows maybe it could remedy a student having a bad day.
