iowa elementary school teacher greets students with custom handshakes

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything from business to work and even school.

But one Iowa teacher is making the best of the situation with custom handshake greetings for her students.

Mary Schulz teaches third grade at Rockwell Elementary, part of the West Fork Community School District.

The district shared a video of Mrs. Schulz going one-by-one and saying good morning to her class with everything from elbow bumps to socially-distanced snaps and salutes.

Oh, and even the Chicken Dance.
