    Teacher Girlie said she started the initiative because she wanted her students to feel comfortable in school.

    The kind teacher said she has seen the improvement and positive reaction of the morning greeting to her students.

    "Noong ginawa ko po ito, nakitaan ko po ng excitement sa pagpasok ang mga bata. Ayaw na po nila nag-aabsent, lalo na po yung mga madalas ma-late, kasi di sila nakaka-touch sa chart namin," Teacher Girlie said.

    Teacher Girlie shared that her chart of morning greeting is now a very important part of her students' school life.

    She explained, "Kasi yung meaning pa lang po noong bawat symbols dun sa chart malaking epekto na sa bata. Yung pag yakap mo sa kanila, ang hawak ng kamay, ramdam na po nila yung love ni teacher sa kanila."

    "Lalong higit yung halaga nila, maganda gawin ito sa simula ng klase kasi matatapos yung klase namin ng masaya," Teacher Girlie said.

    The video has gone viral after netizens lauded the teacher's care for her students. It has been viewed by 8.9 million times and shared over 100,000 times.
