In my boredom lastnight I reverted to an old pastime of googling people and seeing what I can find about them online. I typed in a guy’s name that I used to work and be friends with but have long since lost contact. Last I’d heard about him was that he was a first grade teacher in my hometown and even though he’d only been teaching for a short amount of time, he was a favorite among the kids, parents, and other teachers. Can’t say I’m really surprised because he always had that thing – personality, charisma or whatever – that you just knew he was going to be a great teacher.
He and his students put together a hilarious music video parody to Whip It for a chance to win $25,000 for an interactive classroom makeover. From the little reading I could find, it was a contest spanning the US, Canada, New Zealand, and Austrailia. Their video made it to the finals but from there I don’t know if they won or not. But even with the contest over, I had to share this video for your viewing pleasure. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.
