Complimenting Children and Creating Kindness!

 I don't usually post about things I find on social media, but I find this a delightful story! 

 
 
In this video Chris Ulmer takes the time to pay several compliments to each and every one of the eight students in his special education classroom at Mainspring Academy in Jacksonville, Florida. Ulmer said the change has been remarkable in his students!

What if parents, as well as more teachers, took the time to do a little of this........
