It has to be a bit of work to get all those handshakes memorized, but White shrugs it off. "It’s muscle memory at this point," he says. It's an amazing way to connect with the kids and make school feel like, as he said in a separate interview with NBC, "a sanctuary."
It's a testament not just to him, but lots of teachers who put in the work and deserve some special recognition.
On the other hand, won't someone think of the substitute teachers? Who is the poor soul standing at the door on the days when Mr. White is sick?!
