Olympic curler Jeff Isaacson got quite the send-off on Wednesday, from his students.

He led the 400 students into the gym at the Gilbert Junior High, complete with a pretend Olympic torch. 

Then the student body chanted "Isaacson," and "USA" and sang "What Does the Fox Say" with curling words instead. They also carried American flags and little paper curling rocks with his picture attached.

This was to honor their science teacher, who's heading to Sochi soon to compete in the winter games.

Students said he's a fun teacher, and although it will be a bummer to have a sub for so long, they're looking forward to hearing about his experiences.
