VALDOSTA, Ga. (WCTV) -- One teacher in Valdosta is going above and beyond the call of duty.

A video posted to Facebook on Friday has nearly two million views and more than 30,000 shares.

Coach Jonathan Oliver at W.G. Nunn Elementary School was helping a student put her hair up during gym class. He said helping students like this is what he does every day.

"They're still kids. This is where you get to have some of the building blocks, and kind of establish rules and establish things that they're going to use for their entire life, that they can kind of grow up with and remember, and understand this is how things should be done and how adults should treat kids," Oliver said. "We want them to see adults that can care for them and love them and treat them the right way, and hopefully they do that when they get older, as well."

The video was taken by paraprofessional Kandice Anderson. Oliver said he was unaware she was taking it and this was just second nature for him.
