Zac Brown Band’s Chicken Fried made a rare appearance last week during High School Algebra 1 class. In harmony even.
I had just finished explaining linear equations to a super hyper-active class of 7th hour Friday pimple poppers. The teacher gave me instructions to make a pot of coffee for the kids, cause the caffeine works reverse with ADHD. And by that time of day…meds are wearing off. So with coffee in hand…
As I gave my last example, I accidentally said…And that’s it kids!
It’s Friday…and the back of the room began in harmony…
“You know I like my chicken fried”….and continued singing, until the whole class was belting it out.
I proceeded into air guitar, while singing along doing my ” happy dance” for 3 more minutes until the bell rang.
Will they remember the linear equation example? Probably not, but they will be the first one to grab me in the hall when I come back and ask for help on the next math issue they have. They’ll come around…..right?And if not, they will always remember that Crazy Fun Sub that sang in class.
And for all you RV Alums at SG,WI and JLR’s friends, who read this blog…..I am way more FUN now as a sub…and someday I’ll make a youtube vid !!!!!
This is for all you Yankees who don’t know “The Song of the South”…….more comonly known as “Chicken Fried”.
