We received this email from our lovely listener Jeanette!
"My name is Jeanette Rondeau and I am Physical Education teacher at Roselle Catholic High School in NJ. After hearing that Cubby was participating in the 22 for 22 challenge I thought what a great idea it would be to use something that is a part of our class everyday to raise awareness to the cause. My Period 7 Phys Ed class of sophomores took part in the challenge. We had 22 students do 22 pushups and at the conclusion of our pushups we nominated every other high school to take part in the challenge and help raise awareness to veteran suicide. The students were actually excited to film this - especially those who had family members in the service."
Shout out to Jeanette and the kids of Roselle Catholic High School for being so amazing!!
Barry White Junior teaches fifth-grade literacy at Ashley Park PreK-8 School in Charlotte, North Carolina. White says he wants his students to be excited about school. In an effort to bring joy and build trust, White began creating individual handshakes with students.
He first tried a special handshake with a student in another class- and it was a slam dunk. White says once the handshakes started, they became contagious.
Today, White not only has a personalized handshake for every single one of his students in each of his three classes, he also has handshakes with volunteers, fellow educators, and students in other grades.
