Ashley Coston Taylor, an 18-year teaching veteran, has kindergarten students at Keene Independent School District greet each other daily by making eye contact, shaking hands and smiling at each other.
“This is something we do every morning to start our day off on the right foot!” said Taylor. “It’s amazing to see my Littles can do something now that they will use the rest of their life. And hopefully make them better people for it!!”
Taylor believes that respect can be planted early.
“When I see the direction the world is heading, it reminds me that what I am doing will make a difference!” she said.
