Mary Morris performed the song for teachers. After the video of her performing the song at a faculty meeting received hundreds of thousands of views, some of her friends helped her create a full music video.

Morris said she “never dreamed it would explode like this, but I’m glad it could brighten a few cold days!” The teacher regularly writes songs for students. Her other hits include the TCAP version of “Your Lips Are Movin’,” “Let It Go” and “It Feels LIke Fire in My Brain,” as well as a version of “Rumor Has It” written for her students taking CRA standardized math tests.

The response from other teachers has been overwhelmingly positive. “From one teacher to another…AMEN GIRL!  You hit it spot on,” said Mary.  “Your video is super awesome and should be the national snow anthem for all teachers,” writes Al.

The goal of most of Morris’ songs is to not only motivate the kids, but also poke fun. She performed a couple her parody videos at pep rallies to loud cheers from her students.
