This to most teachers is a way of noticing as well as appreciating people in the room. However, teachers should not assume that they always have to touch their students. Many teachers feel they have to do some adjustments in other to connect with their students. This is not always true. For every students who like the idea of you adjusting their postures another might hate it completely. People generally like to be seen, and know that you have their best interest in your mind. They want you to assist them, call out their name, and look them in the eye.
