When Jorgy Emerson asked his PE teacher Lauren Watts if he could jump rope, she didn't hesitate.

The Harrisburg elementary School P.E. teacher went behind Jorgy's chair and pushed with her ribs, while using her own arms to jump the rope around his wheelchair.

Watts posted the video to Facebook to remind others that teachers can have an impact on children lives. The video has been sharedmillions of times on social media.

“I had no idea this was going to happen. I just want to help other kids, because some kids like me are actually having trouble finding their place," Jorgy said.
