Teacher Uses “Old Town Road” for Test Prep

A teacher in Birmingham may have one the hottest remixes of “Old Town Road” right now. Jasmine Merlette decided to create a fun way to motive her third graders after one student shared how nervous she was over the class’ end of year assessments. 

So Merlette took Lil Nas X’s hit song to help her kids. She posted a video clip of the kids singing, “I’m gonna ace my test, gonna raise my score / I’m gonna solve ’til I can’t no more /School is my task/ I can do this math/ really quick and fast/ education is that swag. Can’t nobody stop me from learning, can’t stop me from learnin’. The wheels in my head keep churnin’, they keep on churnin.”It’s definitely cuteness overload. The viral video even caught the attention of Nas X. He retweeted the clip with the caption, “I’m cheesing hard as hell watching this. This beautiful.” 

Merlette said she was happy to receive the co-sign and she’s glad to see her students’ confidence lifted. “As teachers, we are here to serve. We need to make sure our students feel empowered, and that they can reach their goals,” she explained.
