If you’re a teacher, you’ve probably already seen the video of Matt Damon giving educators a verbal bear hug at the ‘Save Our Schools March.’ It’s spreading through the internet among teachers like the flu through a kindergarten classroom.

Damon, the son of a teacher, is a passionate advocate for letting teachers do their work without the interference of pointless testing or guys and gals in suits who have never stepped foot inside a classroom.

Damon said a lot of smart things in his speech about his own experience in the public school system and about his journey through education, but it was his closing statements that brought many teachers to tears.

The actor/writer said, “So the next time you’re feeling down, or exhausted, or unappreciated, or at the end of your rope; the next time you turn on the TV and see yourself called “overpaid;” the next time you encounter some simple-minded, punitive policy that’s been driven into your life by some corporate reformer who has literally never taught anyone anything. … Please know that there are millions of us behind you. You have an army of regular people standing right behind you, and our appreciation for what you do is so deeply felt. We love you, we thank you and we will always have your back.”

Watch the full video below, and prepare to email it to your friends who work in education, or better yet, to the public school teacher who inspired you to be who you are today.
