VALDOSTA, Ga – A gym teacher who fixes the ponytail of a pre-school student gained national attention after the video became viral on Facebook.
Jonathan Oliver was seen in the 22-second clip staring at Kristen Paulk's hair at the WG Nunn Elementary School in Valdosta, Georgia. The video captured by Kandice Anderson, a preschool assistant, was posted on Facebook two weeks ago and has so far over 3.1 million views. He also commented on the post on the moment:
"When your work goes beyond teaching … #CoachO #LoveIt"
"It was shocking for me to get so much attention because we all do it, we want to make them feel like they're at home and they love to be here, let's try to love them as much as possible. It was just a ponytail," said Oliver Good Morning America.
Oliver is the father of three children and often draws his daughter's hair. He also admitted that it is a good thing that Kristen did not ask for a more complicated hairstyle because, "Anything else, I would say, it's better than asking your mom," Oliver told GMA.
