Teachers are very important and can really make a difference in the lives of students. That's clearly the case here, because Drake sends a text message to his high school teacher. That's right, the rapper keeps in communication with his favorite teacher from his high school days. Seriously, it's the sweetest and shows the great impact he had on Drake, and he continues to do so to this day.
Next to a screenshot of his last text conversation, Drake shared on Instagram on Tuesday,
"My favorite teacher in high school still sends me text messages like I'm going to class this week and I want her for that. [pink heart emoji]"
As you can see below, his teacher, whom he has listed as "Kim" (yes, they are now in first name), sent him a Billboard Article published on October 22. The article, of course, was about Drake and the headline read: "Drake was ranked 12th among Billboard's top 100 in the top 10 of 2018, beating the Beatles in a single year."
First of all, it's a great achievement, congratulations, Drake! That's exactly what her teacher thought, while she sent him a text message,
"WOW! That's pretty amazing! I often wonder what your self would think 16/17 … How amazing! Congratulations!"
How sweet is that? She obviously could not be more proud. As his teacher mentioned, Drake probably never imagined that when he was a teenager he would be where he is today as one of the most popular artists and someone whose fans can not get enough of. Oh, and you know, going to the Beatles on the charts.
Yes, Drake responded to his teacher and fortunately he even shared his answers in the screenshot. He first wrote appropriately,
Then, he wrote a longer answer. It reads:
"I do not think that my 16 or 17 year old understands that I would only want a Nestea and to discover how I can turn my 61% into 73% as soon as possible."
It does not seem that Drake, aged 16 or 17, would care so much, according to the singer. The previous one is no secret Degrassi Star did not have the typical high school experience like many other teenagers. In 2002, he dropped out of high school with only one remaining loan. He told 106 KMEL (via MTV) in September 2010, "At one point in my life, I was a lost child, I knew I wanted to make music, but I dropped out of high school against the wishes of my mother, who happens to be a retired teacher. "
It was not until 10 years later, in October 2012, Drake finally graduated from high school. He received his diploma a decade later, which shows that it is never too late to complete his education or make more of himself in any area of life.
Actually, Professor Drake still seems that the texts are the same person who helped him get his high school diploma. The day he graduated in 2012., the rapper took to Twitter and wrote,
"97% in my final exam, 88% in the course, one of the best feelings of my life." As of tonight, I graduated from high school, thanks to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly. with me OVO SOUND ".
If you look at the previous screenshot, Drake's teacher's initials are listed as "KJ" in your contacts, which could mean "Kim Janzen". If they are one in the same, well, Janzen is a truly amazing person and teacher. No wonder Drake still sends him a text message.
