A cute video showing a teacher fixing his student’s hair will put a smile on your face today.
Georgia phys ed teacher Jonathan Oliver was captured on film assisting kindergartner Kristen Paulk to fix her ponytail in gym class at WG Nunn Elementary School in Valdosta.
Oliver is a father of three, said Kristen asked him to fix her ponytail during a basketball activity which is nothing new for him as he often styles his daughter’s hair.
The moment was uploaded on Facebook by the assistant kindergarten teacher, Kandice Anderson who wrote, “When your job goes beyond teaching… #CoachO #LoveIt.”
It has garnered more than 3 million views and is a shock to Oliver as he said, “It was shocking to me that it got that much attention because we all do it,” adding that he didn’t realize he was being filmed.
He added, “We [teachers] want to make them feel like they’re at home and that they enjoy being here,” he added. “We try to love on them as much as possible. To me, it was just a ponytail.”
