Students at Peter Woodbury School in Bedford, New Hampshire have been delighted recently to find adorable designs vacuumed into their classroom carpets. Based on his creations, Ron Munsey, the artist in question and school janitor, may be the most cheerful custodian around.


“Ron is new to the school,”Angie Perron Wyand, a first-grade teacher whose students are delighted by Munsey’s handiwork, told ABC News. “Before this year he worked as a beverage distributor so he was working 60 or 70 hours a week and now he’s working like 40 hours a week so I feel like that’s something’s he’s really enjoying.

She added: “He’s obviously putting his time and creativity into something you’d think was a simple job but he’s taking it to the next level. He’s always very helpful. If you need something he’ll get it for you right away. He cleans the rooms really well. He’s just goes above and beyond each night.â€

“He said he’s always wanted to do it this but his wife won’t let him do it in the living room,”assistant principal Dan Mitchell said with a laugh.

“It goes a long way,”he added. “His shift is when the kids are gone, so oftentimes they lack that connection between the night staff and the students here in the day. It really drives home the point that there are so many people that come in here after you’re gone and they work so hard to make a safe, comfortable and happy place for you to learn. He’s an employee of the school but he’s a stranger to the kids so to take that extra time with these small gestures really drives home that personal connection.â€

Sometimes it takes a little reminder of the humanity that makes us all human. If we all took a little time to get to know one another, the result would change the world forever.
