Video: Alexandria teachers do Lady Gaga

By Mike McPhate

Teachers at Holmes Middle School in Alexandria thrilled students Tuesday with a dance performance of Lady Gaga's monster hit "Bad Romance."

The educators donned in full Gaga attire for the dance performed as part of an end-of-the-school-year talent show in the school's cafeteria.

"The kids were so excited," parent Christine Haber told Fox 5 news. "They knew the teachers were going to perform at this event, but it was much better than anyone could have ever anticipated."

Holmes Middle School is not in Alexandria. The Post needs to be a bit more careful- just because a place carries an alexandria mailing address, does not make it part of the City. Please be more accurate in your reporting. Much of Fairfax County carries an Alexandria mailing address, but is county property, not City. Do a little checking while gathering your facts...

I agree with the previous commenter, this is not Alexandria and is confusing to those of us who clicked the link expecting to see something related to Alexandria City Public School District. It's akin to refering to Bailey's Crossroads as Falls Church.

Educators are so cool. I don't remember them being this much fun when I was a student. Thanks for sharing WP.

This video is absolutely amazing. I can't think of a better way to connect with students than through the arts!
