NACOGDOCHES, Texas (KETK) – An East Texas teacher was highlighted on her school’s Facebook page Thursday for a loving method she uses to greet her students.

Cheryl Burnaman, a kindergarten teacher at Martinsville ISD in Nacogdoches, was filmed greeting her students to start the day.

Children line up and point to a poster to show how they want to greet Mrs. Burnaman.

Their choices are:

  • Hug
  • Wave
  • High-Five
  • Fist Bump
  • Handshake

And those handshakes can get creative. About 15 seconds into the video, a boy shares with her a custom, multi-step handshake that left her laughing.

Parents left comments on the post saying how much of a blessing it was to have a teacher like Burnaman on campus.

One mom wrote: “Awe Mrs. Cheryl you’re the best!!!! You are loved by so so many and your smile and laugh are contagious ❤”

In total during the video, there were: 5 hugs, 1 wave, 0 high-fives, 1 fist bump, and 1 handshake.

What an East Texas way to start the day!
