A teacher from Chicago has gone viral on TikTok for pumping his students up each morning with tech-house.

Mr P, also known as “TechHouseTeacher” or @jakeshoredrive_ on TikTok, posted a clip to the social media platform to share a letter a student wrote to thank him for sharing his music each morning, and to continue doing so. The video has garnered over 2.8 million views since being shared.

“I think word has spread about this letter from my student that went viral,” he captioned his video.

The letter, which encouraged him to keep up the practice, said, “Mr P, can you please keep playing house music when we come into school in the morning? It really makes me happy and ready for the day.”
