This pretty teacher in Spain has hit the headlines after she was snapped teaching human anatomy to primary school children in a onesie of a skinned body showing human flesh and organs.
Veronica Duque taught her primary students, aged between eight and nine years old, at the Maria Teresa Inigo de Toro school in the city of Valladolid, in the central Spanish region of Castilla y Leon wearing an outfit mimicking a skinless human body.
Duque was teaching the children human anatomy and the outfit allowed the youngsters to see where the lungs, liver, intestines, muscles and other organs are positioned in the body.
Her husband shared the pictures on Twitter where they received more than 33,500 likes and 7,130 comments.
He wrote in the caption: “Very proud of this volcano of ideas I am lucky to have as a wife. Today she explained the human body to her students in a very original way. And the kids were shocked. Great Veronica!”
Duque told local newspaper El Espanol that she had not expected the reaction after buying the outfit on the AliExpress website.
Local media report it is not the first time she has worn a costume in her lessons. She has reportedly previously dressed up as a pirate, a Roman, and a Middle Age farmer.
She says teaching with the costumes helps keep her students motivated
She has a degree in English Language and another in Primary Teaching. She has been a teacher since 2005, before which she was an air hostess. She teaches Language, Arts, Social Studies, and Natural Sciences.
Netizen ‘Juanmacofren’ commented: “Congratulations, thanks to those teachers who still have a will for teaching, to use imagination in their wonderful profession, valuing the learning process of the students.”
‘HugoHerra’ added: “Very beautiful, those kids are lucky. Maybe if I had had that chance, Gray’s Anatomy and the dissections of the School of Medicine would have been more familiar to me”.
‘ignaciosoloaga’ said: “She was my tutor in primary school and I remember her with affection and lots of love. One of the best teachers I have ever had and she left a mark on me. I remember some of her lessons better than most of my university classes.”
