Atlanta Teacher Impresses Us All With His Serious Dance Moves

Coolest. Teacher. Ever.

An Atlanta teacher has become a viral sensation after he posted a video of himself doing an epic dance routine with his students.

Ron Clark, co-founder and teacher at The Ron Clark Academy, posted the clip to his Facebook page on Monday where it quickly racked up more than two million views. In the caption he wrote, "Ron Clark Academy having fun with the #doitlikemechallenge."

In the 30-second clip, Clark and his students are seen showing off some wicked dance moves in the middle of their classroom. Take a look at the impressive routine above.

Speaking to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution about the video, Clark said: "We want to meet kids where they are and recognize their interests. We push them hard academically, but we also work hard on relationships and bonds."

This isn't the first time the Atlanta teacher has made headlines. Clark is a renowned educator, who has spent years working with disadvantaged students in North Carolina and New York. In 2007, he founded The Ron Clark Academy and was named one of Oprah's all-time favourite teachers.

"I am driven and I have a vision for these students," he told Oprah back in 2001. "I have a vision for their future, and I want them to succeed."
