Wyckoff, New Jersey Fifth Grader Makes Plea To ‘The Boss’ In YouTube Video

WYCKOFF, NJ (CBSNewYork) – A fifth grader from Wyckoff, New Jersey is hoping an online plea to Bruce Springsteen will help make her teacher’s dream of meeting “The Boss” come true.

Eleven-year-old Macie Sparozic posted a video on YouTube begging Springsteen to come to her class at the Sicomac School to meet her fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Cordello.

“My teacher is Mrs. Cordello and she teaches her kids that they can make their dreams come true,” Macie says in her video.

Her teacher, Macie says, is a huge Springsteen fan whose love for “The Boss” has rubbed off on her students.

“She’s your biggest fan ever, she teaches us all your songs,” said Macie. “We take Bruce breaks from our studies and sing your songs. We even watch your videos on YouTube in class.”

Macie says Mrs. Cordello has been teaching for 25 years and if she had 25 students in class for each of those years, there are 625 new Bruce fans walking the streets today thanks to her.

But besides being the biggest Bruce fan ever, the soft-spoken fifth grader says Mrs. Cordello is nothing short of inspiring.

“She really is a special teacher and I want to make her dreams come true and have you come to her classroom and surprise her,” Macie said to Springsteen in her video. “Man, would I love to see her face when you walk through that door. She says no dream is too big so let’s prove her right.”

So far, her video has had more than 1,400 hits and viewers joining in, begging Bruce to make the trip to Wyckoff.

    Great job Macie. I remember being inspired by a teacher, and he used Bob Dylan lyrics. I loved his class. He transformed boring English into a class that was cool and relevant at the time.
