A Fourth Grade teacher from Chicago wrote and recorded a brand new rap song for his incoming students this Fall semester. Dwayne Reed, a teacher at Stenson Elementary School wrong the the song titled “Welcome To The Fourth Grade” because he “didn’t want it to be boring and super old school.” So instead of the traditional newsletter he decided to create a rap video highlighting the year’s curriculum instead. “I wanted to get them jazzed about coming to fourth grade,” Reed said.
“What I would want to come across is that the person that is going to be leading you this semester is so pumped about serving you. We can have fun and we can joke and we can be hardworking as well.”
But before creating the video, Reed wanted the OK from his supervisor, principal Sue O’Neil.
“We loved the idea, so we encouraged him,” O’Neil said. “Of course, we had no idea it would take off like this. When we saw it, it was uplifting and creative, and it’s a great way to connect with the kids and get them excited about school.”
What’s even more great is that Dwayne Reed is not selling is song on iTunes but making it for free to download. Check out the video below.
