Kentucky Principal Channels Mariah Carey with Hilarious Snow Day Announcement


Thanks to social media, teachers and principals are now gracing the internet with hilarious parodies for school snow days. Each more clever that the one prior.

Principal Chad Caddell from Florence, Kentucky, decided to join in on the fun and came up with a parody of his own, set to the tune of Mariah Carey’s “Hero.”

As it turns out, this isn’t the first time Caddell has participated in a school closing tune.

He did a “Bohemian Rhapsody” parody back in 2014 when he was drama teacher with the then-principal of his building.

As for his newest viral sensation, Caddell claims to have written the song in about ten minutes.

It’s filled with hilarious quips asking parents not to punch him in the face and telling students to go play some Xbox and just smile.

Since sharing the video on Jan. 8, 2018, the video has been viewed over 230,000 times and shared by numerous news outlets.

The comments from students, parents, and those who are now new fans of the crooner have left some equally hysterical comments for him to enjoy.

Checking out Union Pointe Academy’s other Facebook pages, it’s apparent Caddell’s zest for life is infectious and he shares it quite frequently with students through song.

Including delivering some students special “singing telegrams” for their birthday.

Caddell is truly a kindred spirit that lights up the room as soon as he enters it. These are the types of teachers and administrators that we dream of for our children.

Much like Kinsie Johns, a third grade teacher from Annette Winn Elementary School in Georgia.

When she found out one of her students was being bullied and called names for her hairstyle, she decided to take matters into her own hands.

The next day, Johns marched into her classroom sporting the exact same hair-do as the little girl. “She was beaming when she saw me and the students noticed that our hair looked the same,” said Johns.

The best part? In the days that followed, many of the other girls in the class (and even some of the boys) decided to wear their hair in “space buns” to show support for their classmate and teacher.

It’s often those teachers and administrators that go above and beyond, like Caddell and Johns, that children remember most. Permanent, long-lasting influences that in their own small way change the world for the better.
