I'd pay Chris Ulmer to do this for me every morning. Seriously.

He's a teacher at Mainspring Academy in Jacksonville, Florida, and every day, he begins by complimenting each student individually. He's been posting the videos (with parents' permission) to his Facebook page - Special Books by Special Kids.

He's been trying to publish a book, and says that he's got 50 rejection letters to keep him "motivated." He's had the same students for three years, and started doing this a couple of years ago. A lot of the kids, who were previously isolated from the rest of the student body, have now started participating in school activities.

We need more people like you in the world, Mr. Ulmer. Thank you!
