BETHLEHEM, PA — School custodian Larry McGee consistently goes above and beyond his job description, including spending his own money on better supplies and sacrificing days off to get extra work done, reported The Morning Call.

McGee has been a janitor for the Bethlehem School District since 1990 and not only has he never taken the job for granted, he''s gone out of his way for the students and staff countless times while expecting nothing in return, reported the article.

However, McGee''s random acts of kindness pale in comparison to his greatest achievement: After a special needs 19-year-old, who only knew about 35 words, came to work with McGee for work experience, the teenager ended up learning more vocabulary words and was able to look people in the eye while speaking to them for the first time, the article stated.

"I really like being a janitor," McGee said. "Some people hate it, but I love it. It''s the kids."
