  • Some teachers go above and beyond for their students and Mr. Reed is definitely one of them.

    The Chicago-based teacher decided to create a rap song for his incoming 4th grade class and teamed up with some awesome people to release the track and a music video to go with it! According to the video description:

    The song and video emphasize the reality that hard work is a must, but that school and learning can certainly be fun!

    Sadly, something so awesome doesn't come without criticism. The melody of the song apparently resembled Michael Jackson's "I Will Be There," and the resulting comments led to Reed choosing not to profit from the song, instead "opting to use it as a fun way to connect with his students and start the school year with some excitement!"

    Do you think Reed's song resembles "I Will Be There?" Why or why not? Let us know what you think in the comments down below or on Twitter @WhatsTrending!
