A third-grade teacher from the Washington, D.C. area has hit the internet by storm for making an incredible long-distance shot to earn her class some holiday treats.

Kathleen Fitzpatrick, the teacher in the wide-spread video, was having fun with her class on the school playground of Holy Trinity School in Georgetown, when a final decision was made. She told the class that if she made a half-court shot, the entire class would be able to spend their final bit of school time before the holidays with a cup of hot chocolate.

Of course, Ms. Fitz the shot.

The pure joy on the kids’ faces as they know they are going to earn something tasty is simply precious.

This holiday-themed feel-good moment spread through social media like wildfire, providing a nice moment right before the holidays.

There is a reason why Fitzpatrick has “crazy range.” Not only did she bring her talents to the playground, but Kathleen Fitzpatrick spent three seasons at St. Joseph’s University – leading the team in three pointers and free throw percentage in two of them – and finished her collegiate career at Rutgers University. She is a shooter.

Who needs a clutch game-winning shot to win a championship when you can get hot chocolate instead?
