Teacher Receives Mixed Reactions for Using Sexyy Red’s ‘SkeeYee’ to Quiet Down Her Elementary School Students
Like Wu-Tang Clan, Sexyy Red is apparently for the children, too. At least her song "SkeeYee" is. An elementary school teacher is using lyrics from the song to help quiet down her students in class, but she's receiving mixed reactions to the action.
Teacher Uses Sexyy Red's "SkeeYee" to Quiet Down Elementary School Students
A teacher named Memori Peoples is a hot topic of conversation on TikTok and Instagram this week after sharing a video of herself using lyrics from Sexyy Red's hit song "SkeeYee" to grab the attention of her fifth-grade elementary school students. On Aug. 29, Peoples posted the video on both social media platforms. In the clip, the words "How I get my students' attention" are written on screen as Peoples is seen sitting in a desk with the camera pointed toward her. Children's voices are heard talking in the background.
The next clips shows Peoples reciting Sexyy Red's lyrics "If you see me and you tryna see wassup." Then the children yell back the popular St. Louis lingo "SkeeYee" and settle down as Peoples begins speaking to them about going to class.
Memori Peoples captioned the clip: "Day 2 of the school year! Each year I have different call and response because each class is different! And well……this class has spoken! Students: “This one hits!” Me: Chhhiillee ♀️ #teacher #teacherlife #elementaryschool."
