Tenn. teacher motivates students every morning with fun song

- An elementary school teacher in Tennessee is using a fun, popular song to get her students moving and motivated every morning. 

St. John Catholic School shared a video on Facebook of second grade teacher Mrs. Finch dancing with her students and singing a remix to the hit "Juju on that Beat." 

"Second grade has fun from the minute they walk through the door," the school said. 

According to the school, the song is from the blog Teaching and So Fourth. Bethany Humphrey, another Tennessee teacher, takes songs and remixes them for children. 

Mrs. Finch, who has been teaching at St. John for two years, used Humphrey's latest remix to get her students moving and smiling. 

"She is absolutely wonderful," the school told FOX 5. "Her kids adore her, as well as her staff!" 

St. John Catholic School is one of nine Jubilee schools in the inner city Memphis area.
