Teachers are one of the most important parts of our community. Fortunately, there are a few wonderful souls out there who go far above and beyond their job requirements to make each one of their students feel loved.
Jerusha Willenborg is one of those special people.
A third grade teacher from Kansas, Willenborg has worked with her class to create an entirely unique handshake for each and every one of her students.
Before the line of learners enter’s her classroom, each child shares their one-of-a-kind choreographed greeting with Willenborg. See them in action with the video below.
Willenborg says the trend staretd when a single student asked if they could have a special handshake four years ago. Not wanting to leave anyone else out, Willenborg offered the same option to all of her students.
Now every child has their own special connection with their teacher, which has already shown a positive impact on classroom decorum and respect. “I just look at their face and I know it builds that relationship,” Willenborg said. “It’s just between me and them and it’s special.”
