Texas Teacher Fires Up Students With His Twist on ‘Uptown Funk’

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, there are about 3.5 million teachers in public and private elementary and secondary schools in the U.S and of these, about 1.2 million are high school teachers. And it’s amazing to think of the impact these men and women have on our lives: most students will tell you there’s at least one teacher whose influence they will never forget.

Scot Pankey is a theater instructor at New Tech High School in Dallas, Texas. As many teachers would put emphasis on only books and classroom activities, Pankey did something more extravagant. He tuned in to pop culture to bond with his students.

Pankey starts slow with his dance and ends up dancing to Bruno Mar’s famous dance number Uptown Funk with an entire class. This teacher has really set the bar high for all the other teachers in the world. Even Bruno Mars himself gave a shoutout to this teacher and his students.
