Classes at Kindezi at Gideons Elementary School in Atlanta, Georgia started back up last week, and one teacher wanted her students to start their school year on a positive and encouraging note, notes Fox 29.
In a video, which has quickly gone viral, fourth grade teacher Neffiteria Acker is shown holding a mirror while her students say positive affirmations to themselves.
“I practice positive affirmations with myself in the morning. I practice them with my daughter who’s five years old, and, I’ve seen just a tremendous amount of confidence and self-value increase with her,” Acker told FOX Television Stations. “So, I decided to do it with our students.”
Acker said she searched high and low for a full-body mirror that was about the height of a fourth-grader.
“I wanted to make sure that they were looking at just them,” Acker continued. “They came up with these amazing affirmations that just sent chills in our bodies.”
