Patrice Brown has been the teacher of the month at her school but it is not her accomplishments people are talking about.
Her photos have gone viral with the hashtag #TeacherBae.
Brown set her account to private and spoke out about the controversy her outfits have caused.
“I just wish they would respect me and focus on the positive and what truly matters – which is educating the children of the future generations and providing and caring for them,” she told The Daily Dot.
Many people have come to her defense online.
The argument is not that Brown is wearing inappropriate clothes but rather she is too curvaceous. Therefore, it’s not the apparel the problem but her body.
Women not blessed with Brown’s body have shared selfies of themselves wearing similar clothes to highlight the hypocrisy.
The Atlanta Public School system released a statement;
“[Brown] was given guidance regarding the APS Employee Dress Code, the use of social media, and Georgia Code of Ethics for educators, and she has been cooperative in addressing her presence on social media,” it read.
Brown being able to educate boys around the age of nine to 10 years old while dressed in form fitting dresses was discussed over social media.
