HACKENSACK, N.J. — Fourth grade Hackensack teacher Toney Jackson is known in the classroom for his lyrical wit.

He recently took his talents to an international level in a new commercial for the Windows 10 PC.

In it, Jackson discusses how the new technology can enhance learning.

"Rap is a great way to engage students," he says. "It's literacy, vocabulary words. Technology is a huge piece of education.

He says the Windows 10 PC, which features a digital pen, makes it possible for him to highlight different rhyme schemes and write over videos, bringing it all to life.

"My calling is teaching and my passion is performing," Jackson said. "Being in the classroom — that's my stage."
