A Tennessee elementary school teacher has captured the hearts of parents everywhere after a resident took a pic of him walking his little students home from class—something he does every day.

In the picture taken by Memphis resident Tabitha Tudy Jones, pictured below and posted on Facebook, Whitney Achievement Elementary School teacher Carl Schneider is seen holding some of the kids’ hands as he escorts them to their houses.

Schneider is one of five teachers at Whitney who volunteer to make sure the 200 children who walk to school get home safely, he told Today.com. The school’s own Facebook page has other photos of the chaperoned walks home.

“It's a lot of fun, and it's a great way to get to know the students on a more informal basis and talk about their day,” the special education teacher said.

Since Schneider has been part of the effort for the past three years, he didn’t expect the sudden attention.

“This is just part of my routine, and it’s something that I look forward to, so I was kind of surprised,” he told Fox 13 in Memphis.
