Coach goes viral online for this one act during kids’ basketball game

Teachers rank among the most significant members of our community, yet being one of the most underappreciated.

It takes a special person to dedicate their life to educate others, serve as role models, give advice, and mentor the younger generations.

We often hear about how teachers have gone above and beyond to help others and, more specifically, the children in their care.One such hero is Jonathan Oliver – a phys-ed teacher at WG Nunn Elementary in Valdosta, Georgia – who was recognized for his kind act towards a kindergartener while coaching a basketball game.

He was only too delighted to aid one of his students when she sought his assistance.

The coach went into action when Kristen Paulk, a kindergartener on Oliver’s basketball team, begged him to assist her in putting her hair back in a ponytail.

Taking a knee on a basketball to get down to little Kristen’s level, Oliver appeared concentrated as he worked on tying her braids back away from her face. Though, unbeknownst to him, he was being recorded.

In fact, Kandice Anderson, another teacher at the elementary school, filmed the coach’s sweet gesture — eventually posting it on YouTube, where he received heartfelt support from the public.

The title of the viral video read: “When your job goes beyond teaching!”

Once Good Morning America saw the video, they got in touch with the 34-year-old father of three and scheduled an interview.
