Boy Meets World Star William Daniels (Mr. Feeny!) Thanks Teachers for Working During Coronavirus
"So thank your teachers today and every day and remember, as much as you learn from them, they learn from you," he said. "As my final piece of teacherly advice: believe in yourselves, dream, try, do good. I love you all. Class dismissed."
As the coronavirus spread in the United States, schools around the country shut down to help limit the infection rate of the viral illness, forcing educators to teach virtually through video classes.
Daniels starred as the insightful instructor on the hit teen series for seven seasons from 1993-2000. He later reprised the role in June 2014 for the Disney Channel series spinoff Girl Meets World — which followed Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) and Topanga Lawrence's (Danielle Fishel) daughter in her own adventures. That show ended in January 2017.
Last year, the Boy Meets World cast, including Daniels, Savage, Fishel (Topanga), Rider Strong (Shawn Hunter) and Will Friedle (Eric Matthews), reunited at the 2019 Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle.
Fishel shared a photo of the bunch huddling together via Instagram, showing the actors gathering and standing around Daniels as he sat centered in a chair.
In the caption of the picture, Fishel riffed off of Mr. Feeny’s famous advice (“Dream. Try. Do Good.”) with her own cheeky caption: “Dream. Try. Do Cons.”
