Disclaimer: Before ya’ll go and start labeling me a hater, let me make one thing very CLEAR: A hater I will never be. This blog will state my opinion and the opinion of a few other women who happen to be “sexy” teachers as well. Lets just look at this blog as a lesson in appropriateness in the classroom. Carry on….
Today when I logged on to Facebook, this woman, Patrice “Tricey” Brown, was all up and down my timeline with this tight, figure hugging dress on with a caption “Sexiest Teacher in America.
Now at first glance, I thought to myself, “Yeah she is bad.” However, when I realized that she was standing in her classroom with that dress on and not the club or a party, I could see why she got that title!!!! It’s kind of easy to win a title that no other teachers are competing for! I have plenty of friends who are teachers with crazy curves who lots of men would consider sexy, just like her, who dress more appropriately for the class room. So if she is one of the many teachers in America posting pics of herself in a classroom dressed like that, the men of course are dreaming that they could go back to fourth grade again and learn their multiplication tables (which some of them might need anyway, but I digress.) Many comments on the internet about her have been positive from men of course saying things like “She can’t help that she has curves,” “She can’t hide all that body,” or “If I had a teacher like that I would’ve made straight A’s.”Anyone who disagrees is of course labeled a hater.
Well I took it upon myself to speak with a couple of other “sexy” teachers to get their thoughts on “The sexiest teacher in America.” This is what they had to say….
M.M, Middle School Teacher
“Children have enough distractions in the classroom without the teacher’s attire being one. Now unless there is a uniform policy in place or dress code guidelines, I don’t see grounds for discipline. However, adults should use modest judgement when dressing for work. Maybe school systems should consider implementing a professional attire etiquette course for professional development to cut down on conflict. Now, I haven’t always gotten it right but I was never extreme. Maybe this young teacher will improve in the future as well.
D.F., Elementary School Teacher
“The teacher that’s been trending is a beautiful young woman with a nice shape. In a school setting with so many hormones raging, her attire isn’t appropriate. As women, we must learn what’s flattering to our shape. It seems the problem is that some don’t understand the proper setting certain clothes should be worn. There are clothes that are flattering while being professional. What she wore was club wear. I’m shaped like her AND I’m an educator. The excuse that ‘women with curves can’t help it’ is a cop out. There are alternatives. I was taught many years ago by my first principal that you dress for the job you want, not the job you have. I’m not sure what her aspirations are but in order to be taken as a serious professional, you have to look like one. At any rate, I think that after this, I doubt that we see her in the classroom much longer. She is very beautiful and I can see her career going in a different direction.”
