Celebrities too have their fair share of inspiring teacher stories and Adele is no exception. As a Part of her promotions for her album ’30’, the concert special ‘An Audience With Adele’ amid a star studded crowd was streaming over the weekend in the UK.

Emma asked Adele if they still stay in touch. Adele replied saying that Miss McDonald left when she was 8 years old, and she hasn’t seen her since. She said that her former teacher “got her obsessed” with literature.
Adele continued to say, “She was so bloody cool and So engaging. She made us care and we knew that she cared about us and stuff like that” Emma soon reveals that Miss McDonald is actually in the audience right now. Miss McDonald gets up from her seat and walks to the stage to see her former student.
Adele’s tears weren’t stopping after their reunion. “Thank you for remembering me,” Miss McDonald says to Adele. The Grammy winner responds that her teacher “really changed her life.” Adele wanted to stay in touch and didn’t wish this to be the last time she sees Miss McDonald.
