Lady Gaga Surprises Kids as Substitute Teacher to Raise Money for Schools

Students attending Walter Reed Middle School in Hollywood met Lady Gaga in their very own classroom. After they were told that they would meet a new substitute teacher, Gaga entered the room in glasses and a Balenciaga suit, and excited squeals ensued. The young fans showed the star some of their work and discussed dreams and future aspirations, as seen in the Staples-produced video. At one point, the performer whips off her thick frames and informs the children "it's me."

Gaga's appearance is in collaboration with the Staples for Students campaign, which seeks to raise funds for schools. To highlight the importance of having access to supplies in the classroom, she tells students "I want you to draw. What is your future and what does it look like?" Without the proper support, "that puts a child at a deficit," she explains to viewers. "I'm here today to promote a positive learning environment."

Staples will provide teachers with supplies through the campaign, and will donate 2 million to DonorsChoose.org and Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation. You can donate in stores, or online. Gaga's Joanne tour begins August 1st, and those who donate will be entered to win a $50,000 scholarship and a trip to Las Vegas to see the tour live. Check out the video below.
