A teacher in Tennesse became a trend by creating personalized handshakes with each of his students (75 kids!). Such was his fame that he became the star of a GAP commercial.
David Jamisonwho is affectionately known as 'The DopeEducator'. It's part of an entirely new back-to-school campaign by Gap referred to as fostering greater integration. Reported a local affiliate of ABC.
"Jamison, who has sworn by collective individualism, aligns with Gap's brand ethos of celebrating distinct civilizations and unique change-makers for generations. Leading the charge for a more inclusive and optimistic world together," Gap commented in a current assertion. "Our platform must serve to drive optimism in USA, where cultural expressions take on a vital importance."
Jamison madenational headlines in 2019 after a video clip of the personalized handshake dances he does with his students each morning went viral. While he has now adapted his greeting to be non-tactile thanks to pandemic disease. It has been reported that his quirky moves and zest for education remain the same.
That's why Gap's new grouping with the Memphis master will run from July 27 to Aug. 22. At the height of the company's back-to-school selling season.
The fall campaign for GapKids captures the particular kinship between Jamison and his fifth-graders. The educator estimates he has memorized well over 200 personalized handshakes during his career. He explains that he does the diverse greetings as a way to reinforce to students that he recognizes them as unique individuals.
"As an infant, I continually possessed drawbacks in school," Jamison mentioned to Local 24 of Memphis, antecedent to describing that the lack of black male educators in his childhood is what inspired him to teach.
"The moment you realize that there are no teachers like you, it's hard to relate and influence change," he thought. "When I decided to become a teacher, I not only wanted to contribute to changing the way we teach, but to be a role model for all the kids I get to teach."
