Rapper’s Delight: Clarksburg Teacher Uses Rap to Educate and Entertain

While students continue to be at home because of COVID-19, one teacher at Hallie Wells Middle School is sharing educational messages every week by rapping to his students virtually.

Michael Doggett, an English teacher at the Clarksburg school, is the sponsor of the Hallie Wells Hip Hop program.

Doggett uses fun lyrics to express how much he misses his students. In his second video posted on Monday, he tells students to send him ideas and to join him in a rap video.

“Stick together and remind each other keep our focus,” said Doggett.

In his first video posted on Twitter March 22, he encourages students to continue working: “Just because we’re not in school doesn’t mean we can’t do stuff.”

Doggett is looking forward to posting a new video every week for students to enjoy.

    I think this is an awesome idea and way for this teacher to keep in touch with his students and to show that he cares about them at all times, not just when they’re in the classroom. I wish more teachers cared like him. Kudos to you Mr Michael Doggett. Keep on being that ray of hope that our kids deserve at this very trying time. My kindergarten teacher Mrs Bracken used to always say to me and my classmates back years ago that, “If you believe in it, then you can achieve it!”. You seem like you’re that type of teacher. Stay safe and thanks again for being there for these students
