Chances are, you made a “secret handshake” or two as a kid — but you’ve got nothing on this North Carolina teacher who has a secret handshake with every one of his students. It might be the most adorable thing we’ve ever seen.

Barry White Jr. is a 5th-grade English teacher at Ashley Park PreK-8 School. He told ABC News the handshakes started as something fun to do during recess.

White says the handshakes help the kids get excited for a day of high-energy teaching.

The school’s Principal, Meaghan Loftus, says the handshakes are helping to form lasting bonds between teachers and students.

We wish we had you as a teacher growing up, Mr. White!
