>>Well, today is Teacher Appreciation Day, and
I wanna show you a video we got from two teachers who are in the audience,
take a look.>>Hi Ellen, my name’s Lauren, and
this is my amazing fiance Alan. We’re elementary school teachers, who happen to also be your
biggest fans in the entire world.>>On our first date, we talked about
you literally, the entire night. So if you think about it, you’re kinda
the reason we’re getting married.>>We really appreciate the fact
that you love and respect teachers. We would never want to do
another job in the entire world. We love being teachers.>>You’re the best.>>We love you Ellen.>>Goodbye.>>So, you basically say that I’m
the reason because your first date you talked about me the whole time.>>We did.
>>The entire night. [LAUGH] So whenever we went on our first
date, I’m sorry, I can’t breathe, I’m so excited, this is so cool! So on our first date, we went out to
dinner, and you know, it’s the cliche, you know, what’s your favorite movie,
what kind of food do you like, and I said my favorite show is the Ellen Show,
and he was like, that’s my favorite
>>I love Ellen too! And she’s like, you don’t watch the Ellen
Show, I’m like, I watch the Ellen Show! I had to convince her that I,
like watch this show! So,
>>She probably though I was just trying to get her to like me, and I’m like no,
I like the Ellen Show, I love it.>>So we bonded the entire night over you,
and how much we love how funny you are, and how amazing your show is. And they actually turned the lights on
at the restaurant and they were like, you have to go. [CROSSTALK]

>>[LAUGH]>>We’re like, we should probably go then, I guess.>>[LAUGH]
>>Wow.>>So yeah,
we bonded over you on our first date.>>That’s amazing. So you’re teachers and you make,
you said you wouldn’t do anything else. That, what is that feeling knowing
you’re changing those kids’ lives?>>I mean for me,
my students had a chorus concert.>>About 2 weeks ago,
Lauren came and the kids. But a dad came up to me, and
he was, Hey, Mr. Matthew. We’d appreciate all you do. My son didn’t really enjoy 1st
grade that much last year and he loves coming to school now. So seeing that change in
the students make a difference, mold those young students lives.>>He’s an amazing teacher.>>I couldn’t do anything else.>>That’s fantastic and I heard you
incorporate me into your classroom.>>I do, I do in my classroom,
I have pictures on my schedule>>I laminated them and they’re you, they’re pictures of you and throughout the day my kids they
know that it’s Ellen dance time. So they’ll see guided reading, independent reading,
and then Ellen’s face. So when it’s Ellen’s face it’s time to
dance, so we dance around the room and it builds confidence and I love it.>>That’s adorable.>>[APPLAUSE]
>>Thank you.>>That’s adorable. You’re an intricate part of
our day every single day.>>Well, I wanted to do something for you. Since I was a part of your first date, I want to give you a few more
dates that I’ll be a part of. So here, I’ll take these down and let’s walk over here I’m gonna
show you what I’m gonna give you. All right, so the first one is
