Pinay Teacher Motivates Students with Hugs, High Fives Before Entering the Classroom

A lot of students actually find it difficult to stay motivated enough to go back to school on a daily basis. What with schoolwork being so difficult at times, many simply wish to stay at home or find other ways to have fun without attending their classes.

A teacher recently went viral for giving hugs and high fives to students before they enter her classroom. This is her way of motivating the children to enjoy their studies and also to make them feel welcome in her class.

Delane Fernz Celeste teaches Grade 5 students at Bawing Elementary School in General Santos City, South Cotabato.

The options include a hug, high five, handshake, and fist bump; however, most of the students actually choose a hug, the teacher shared.

Before the class gets inside the room, Teacher Celeste stands up at the door and gives them the greeting they choose from the wall. This way, she gets to show them that they are always welcome in her classroom – and that’s really one of the best ways to motivate a student.
