A 34-year-old teacher is warming hearts across social media after his teaching assistant caught footage of him helping a kindergarten student with her hair.
Jonathan Oliver is a physical education teacher from WG Nunn Elementary School in Valdosta, Georgia. He was in the middle of teaching a gym class earlier this month when young Kristen Paulk asked for help putting her hair into a ponytail.
Luckily, since Oliver is a father of three kids, he has had some experience styling his daughter’s hair – so he got down on his knees and got to work on Kristen’s hair.
Oliver’s assistant teacher Kandice Anderson caught a video of the sweet moment and shared it to Facebook where it racked up 3 million views.
“It was shocking to me that it got that much attention because we ALL do it,” Oliver told Good Morning America. “We [teachers] want to make them feel like they’re at home and that they enjoy being here. We try to love on them as much as possible. To me, it was just a ponytail.
Kristen’s mother says that she was touched by the footage, but she wasn’t surprised, saying: “I always know that Kristen is in very good hands with him.”
