First and foremost, a huge thank you to every single teacher out there for all of their hard work. Without them, we all wouldn’t be where we are today. Tuesday was Teacher Appreciation Day, and The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon did something pretty freakin’ awesome to celebrate.

Fallon pulled a few teachers from the audience to ask a little about themselves. Afterward, each teacher was serenaded with a song about themselves by Philly’s hip-hop heroes The Roots. Lead MC Black Thought’s freestyling skills shined, incorporating “ABC” by the Jackson 5, “Stir Fry” by Migos, and “Dancing Queen” by ABBA. I was LOLing when Questlove ad-libbed during the Stir Fry when he shouts “French Fry” — It was perfect.

Watch video of the freestyle below.
