Teachers have a huge influence in the lives of their students. In fact, there are many teachers who are so kind and inspiring that they make a huge impact on their students, changing their lives and making them study harder for their future.
Being an inspiration to many students is certainly a tall order for teachers but a lot of teachers are able to achieve that by making sure they do something that would uplift the children.
One teacher in Thailand recently made waves for the way she inspires her students each day. She makes each day fun and wonderful for the students by creating a special handshake with them.
Before school starts each day, the teacher would stand at the door while her students line up, waiting for their turn for their special handshake.
While the handshake is the same, with the teacher and the students counting 1 to 13 in Thai, Chinese, and English, the ending is unique for each student.
Sometimes the teacher and the student would give each other high fives. At times it would be a dab or a dance or just about anything that makes each student feel special because he/she has a different handshake ending with the teacher.
It is easy to see in the now viral video that the students were excited over the special handshake with their teacher. A number of them could be seen waiting excitedly for their turn, while others just seem to be so excited they wanted to skip the queue and be ahead of the others. So cute.
It is clear that the students love this teacher and enjoy being in her class. Surely, they enjoy coming to school each day because she’s so much fun – and they all look forward to the special handshake.
Isn’t this awesome?
