The latest appropriation of the smash hit song comes from Illinois advanced algebra and geometry teacher Cassie Crim, AKA Mrs. Crim, who has remixed the song into a humorous look at life as an educator and dealing with students at Joliet West High School.

“I’ve always incorporated rap music in my classroom,” Crim told Radio.com. “I’m in my tenth year teaching and this is just what I do to make kids want to work harder and it helps break down the learning barrier.”

The video has gone viral, but more importantly to Mrs. Crim, it’s reaching her students.

“The students absolutely love the video and song,” she said. “It’s like I’m the coolest teacher in the school now. Kids will take the long route to class just to stop by my classroom. It’s like being a celebrity.”

“My husband and I are brainstorming now on what to do next,” she continued. “We’re thinking maybe a Math Teacher Mixtape. If any rappers out there need a ghostwriter, you know where to find me!”
