It's time to wake up, people! This one goes out to teachers—teachers and students.
A Pep Talk for Teachers and Students
It's time to get our learn on! And we got a lot to learn, too. I don't know it all, but I know a few things.
Science! You're here. You take up space. You matter. It's just science, man!
Don't be a bully. Don't even be a bully to the bullies. It just makes more bullies. We can all be awful sometimes, but we can all also be awesome. It's time to be more awesome. And that's what it's time for.
History! We gotta study it so we don't repeat it. But if history does repeat itself, then I'm gonna name my pet dinosaur Reginald. I just hope he doesn't eat me.
We can't just study history—we gotta make history! And history's made by ordinary people, ordinary people like you and me...and that guy.
The world's greatest thinkers, Confucius, Albert Einstein, Justin Timberlake, they put their pants on one leg at a time just like me. But I put my pants on one leg at a time while I'm dancing.
You can go by. Yeah. You're gonna be in the video, though.
Life is school, and you gotta show up. You can't just sleep in, you can't be late, and you can't just hang out in the bathroom—that's gross.
It's like Walt Whitman said, "Yolo!" except he didn't say that. But you would know that if you would read a book, people! Seriously, read a book! Any book! Except the vampire ones. You wanna change the world? You gotta know about it.
What if Shakespeare didn't go to school? His plays would be even more confusing!
To be or not to be... Is that the question? I don't know what a question is; I didn't go to school. Anybody? Help me out here?
I got a question for you: What are you teaching the world? How to be boring? How to make the world sad? No! No, you're not. We're teaching the world what it looks like to be awesome. No matter who you are, somebody's learning from you. Everybody's a teacher, and everybody's a student. Look for the awesome!
Teachers see things. They see when you're running down the hall, they see when you're passing notes, but they also see the person that we can all become someday—a writer or a speaker or a Martin Luther King. Teachers keep teaching; students keep studenting—that's not a word. Sorry about that. Here's to teachers that see the awesome.
The homework is this: What you wanna teach the world? Do it. And let's make some history together, because it's simple math—together we're louder.
Those girls are a little too loud.
Is there a teacher inspires you? Let them know. This is for teachers everywhere, so share it with them. We gotta make the world awesome! Somebody's learning from you. I'm out.
Get your learn on! We're making history. I'm gone!
What are you teaching the world? Comment below! Share with a teacher you love.
Keep learning, people.
