I cannot even imagine any of the teachers I had in school rapping. I did have a social studies teacher in middle school who was known for spitting when he talked - but he was definitely not spitting rhymes.

Honestly, I don't know if a rapping teacher would have impressed me back then? If you wanted to connect with me when I was in 7th or 8th grade you had to be wearing a Bon Jovi T-shirt and buying me cigarettes.

Fast forward to the year 2021 and rapping teachers isn't really anything new, but it is a super cool way to connect with students. A recent 'Teacher Rap' comes from Jason Gilbert and Mike Sellin. The dynamic duo teaches at Lakeview Middle School in Battle Creek.

In order to explain a new cell phone policy implemented at the school, the teachers composed a rap called 'Bell to Bell'. The new policy basically states that students cannot use a cell phone in between the start of the class bell and the end of the class bell.

The only time students are allowed to use phones is as follows,

  • Passing time in the hallway to get to their next class
  • Before and after school
  • Lunch period

If I wanted to call anyone when I was in school, I had to have a quarter for the payphone or go to the office and ask the secretary to make the call for me. How did we even survive back then?

Check out the 'Bell to Bell' rap below. They may not be wearing Bon Jovi shirts in the video, but Mr. Gilber and Mr.Selin do indeed rule.

Mr. Gilbert explains the new phone policy in more detail below.

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
