An primary school teacher has been blasted for wearing “inappropriate” outfits to work, with some outraged parents describing her as “desperate” and “attention-seeking”.
The US teacher — who has not disclosed her full name — has clocked up 870,000 followers on Instagram where she shares photos of her figure-hugging ensembles, often taken in her classroom.
In some snaps, the brunette can be seen posing against a whiteboard. In other images, her students are visible inside the classroom, although their faces are not identifiable.
Many have praised the body-confident educator for her fashion prowess, but some parents on social media say she should not be wearing such outfits around minors, the NY Post reports.

“You’re in a classroom taking Instagram pictures with your ass out. Showing pictures in the class with your butt in the air is very inappropriate,” one ranted.
“That [photo] just looks crazy and makes you desperate for likes,” another raged.
A third blasted: “You’re sad, taking booty pics during class?”
However, the teacher has hit back, sharing a live, 14-minute video defending her Instagram images.
“I have seen some men said some crazy, mean stuff, but I teach babies and there are no haters in the classroom thinking of that,” the art teacher declared.
“I’m a really, really good teacher,” she continued.
“I had students emailing me during the summer asking me for homework. They love art. I love teaching art. I love working with children to create art.”
Viewers showered praise on the educator, applauding her “passion” for her job and reminding her that “haters are gonna hate”.
Meanwhile, she has even found a surprising supporter in rapper Fat Joe, who created a video claiming critics are trying to get the beauty “fired” from her job.
“They’re trying to fire her because she too sexy,” the musician — real name Joseph Antonio Cartagena — said in a YouTube video.
“She too beautiful. She’s too curvaceous.”
The teacher has been contacted via her social media account for comment.
