Yo! Michigan Teacher Raps – Check Out This New Cell Phone Policy Rhyme
I cannot even imagine any of the teachers I had in school rapping. I did have a social studies teacher in middle school who was known for spitting when he talked - but he was definitely not spitting rhymes.
Honestly, I don't know if a rapping teacher would have impressed me back then? If you wanted to connect with me when I was in 7th or 8th grade you had to be wearing a Bon Jovi T-shirt and buying me cigarettes.
Fast forward to the year 2021 and rapping teachers isn't really anything new, but it is a super cool way to connect with students. A recent 'Teacher Rap' comes from Jason Gilbert and Mike Sellin. The dynamic duo teaches at Lakeview Middle School in Battle Creek.
In order to explain a new cell phone policy implemented at the school, the teachers composed a rap called 'Bell to Bell'. The new policy basically states that students cannot use a cell phone in between the start of the class bell and the end of the class bell.
The only time students are allowed to use phones is as follows,
- Passing time in the hallway to get to their next class
- Before and after school
- Lunch period
If I wanted to call anyone when I was in school, I had to have a quarter for the payphone or go to the office and ask the secretary to make the call for me. How did we even survive back then?
Check out the 'Bell to Bell' rap below. They may not be wearing Bon Jovi shirts in the video, but Mr. Gilber and Mr.Selin do indeed rule.
Mr. Gilbert explains the new phone policy in more detail below.
