Florida special ed teacher Chris Ulmer starts every class day in a very unique way.

Before any work starts, Ulmer calls each child up to the front of the classroom and compliments them.

"I love having you in my class. I think you're very funny. You're a great soccer player. Everyone in here loves you," he says at the start of a video posted on Facebook, which has gotten over 20 million views.

Ulmer runs a Facebook page for his class (with parent's permission) and has been trying to get a book published about his students.

From ABC:

Ulmer's Facebook page, Special Books by Special Kids, was created because he has been trying, unsuccessfully, to get a book published about the kids. "I have 50 rejection letters on my fridge to keep me motivated," he said. The book focuses on the story of each of the kids in his classroom and is collaboratively told by the child, his or her parents, and from Ulmer's perspective as their teacher.

He's had the same kids in his class for three years and said that they've "evolved as a family. We have an understanding that comes with time that you don't naturally have."

Great job, Chris. Keep it up!

This teacher has some definitely class.


When a single mom in Nashville had to bring her child to class, he didn't care. When the small boy wanted to be held by the him, the professor was chill AF.

It's kind of great.

Local news channel WishTV has the story:

Amanda Osbon studies at DeVry University, located in south Nashville, and didn't have a choice but to take her son to class on Monday.

She told WKRN-TV her son, who is almost 2 years old, got up during class and wanted to be held by the professor.

Professor Joel Bunkowske, who Osbon says "was amazing, patient and kind," didn't skip a beat.

He picked up little Xzavier and continued to teach his class.

"Most of us in the class are parents, so everyone was very understanding that he was there," Osbon wrote..

She admitted it was embarrassing at first until Professor Bunkowske noted that everyone struggles, and that's OK.

He certainly beats yesterday's teacher who called a four-year-old evil for writing with his left hand.

So, well done.
