Despite being among the most important members of society, teachers receive the lowest pay.
Someone who dedicates their life to instructing, advising, and mentoring the next generation is a rare breed. There are numerous instances of instructors going above and beyond to support their pupils.
For instance, Jonathan Oliver, a physical education teacher at Valdosta, Georgia’s WG Nunn Elementary School, was recently recognized for a selfless act he carried out while coaching a kindergarten basketball game. He would be happy to assist a student who asked for assistance.
Oliver, Kristen Paulk’s kindergarten basketball coach, stepped in to assist Paulk when she needed assistance tying her hair back in a ponytail. Oliver appeared focused as he removed Kristen’s locks from her eyes, bending down to her level on a basketball. But without even realizing it, he was being recorded.
The coach’s thoughtful gesture was captured on camera by Kandice Anderson, one of the elementary school’s teachers. She then posted the footage to YouTube, where it garnered a lot of positive feedback. The video’s title was “When your job goes beyond teaching!” and it quickly went viral.
