Using Unique Handshake to Connect with Students

Mr. Barry White Jr., a teacher at Ashley Park PreK-8, greets his fifth grade students each day with a personalized handshake. Mr. White, a Cleveland Cavaliers fan, told NBC Charlotte he was inspired by LeBron James and the way the Cavs superstar personalized his handshakes with every teammate. He says the most critical component to teaching is the relationship you build with your students. He is an excellent example of building positive and caring relationships with students and why #CharacterMatters.
