The Special Greeting Ms. Stockwell Gives Her Students

Second-grade teacher Ms. Stockwell makes sure her student's day is started off right.
Every morning students can choose how they want to be greeted, hug, high-five, fist bump, handshake, or wave.
Ms. Stockwell says she was inspired by the idea as a way to connect with her students. She says the students enjoy it and most of them choose a hug.
“It’s a great way for me to just connect with them right away in the morning and build that relationship here at school because I think if you don’t have good relationships with kids you don’t have much," said Stockwell.
