He didn’t think anything of his actions until people started making a fuss. He felt like he was just doing he duty as a teacher.
He works for a school, in what many would say, is an unsafe neighborhood, however he admits he feel completely comfortable and smiles and makes eye contact with everyone he passes.
So, his initiative to walk students home from school was just an extension of who he is as a teacher, he didn’t think he needed special recognition but people started taking pictures and posting them to Facebook.
One picture, take by a mom, went viral.
He’s been doing this for the three years he’s worked for the school and now four other teachers are also walking students home totaling over 40 students they can ensure arrive home safely.
This act also extends the teacher-student relationship, allowing them to discuss home, school and anything else that might come up in a less structured environment which builds trust and strengthens the bond of the teacher-student relationship making for a better classroom environment.
