It would be impossible not to smile watching your middle school principal dance like this.
First day of school jitters have kids feeling tense and nervous all the time.
We may no longer remember the feeling but really, you surely felt the same every year before the start of school. The best part is seeing friends in the hallways once again.
However, there are kids who dread that first day for many different reasons.
Peer pressure, bullies, and even just being self-conscious are factors for many youngsters to feel the jitters. School employees know this all too well but not all of them make it easy for the students.
Remington Middle School in Franklin, Massachusetts has gotten used to Wildeman’s tradition of welcoming students back for the new school year with a dance.
In a pink button down, blue tie, and slacks, principal Wildeman sets up a stereo by the main walkway and proceeds to start dancing, and he does so with passion!
Now how many school principals would be willing to welcome their students back this way?
“At first, I thought this would be painful, but this principle gets so into it, it’s hard not to smile … XD Well done.” says a viewer named MyNamesNotMike15.
So imagine how those kids felt like driving up to school and feeling super nervous, only to see their very own principal busting out his moves just to welcome them back.
Some wave hi to the camera, others gave him a high five, while most suddenly seemed to have a spring in their step.
