Melanie Kellam, a teacher at McDonough Middle School, shared a snippet of the rap she had written.

"Today, I gave a little Remote Arts Integration to @MMS_HCS learners, by rapping about Jimmy Carter. Here's a snippet. Now the kids are creating their own. Model what you want to see!" she wrote in the tweet.

In her rap, Kellam calls out Carter’s upbringing in Plains and time spent in the Navy.

It quickly drew the attention from some big-name accounts on Twitter, including the Jimmy Carter Library.

"Wow! We want to hear the whole thing!" the library wrote in a tweet.
