Patrice Brown (AKA Paris Monroe) – a fourth-grade teacher in Atlanta – has been the subject of criticism on social media this week after an Instagram photo of her outfit at school went viral.
As you can see, there’s nothing wrong with what she’s wearing – a form-fitting dress that isn’t super short and doesn’t reveal any cleavage. But many people are blasting the woman who is now known as #teacherbae for her clothing choices.

Comments on Twitter and Instagram ranged from: “She wouldn’t be teaching my child dressed like that … there’s a time and a place for everything and in the classroom is not it. Taking selfies in the middle of the classroom … bih #inappropriate af” to “The only reason why people are saying this is inappropriate is because she’s thick lmao, which is pretty dumb. Her body is covered so there’s nothing inappropriate about it.”
I wholeheartedly agree with the second comment.
If this woman – who has been awarded Educator of the Month – was rail thin, no one would have even noticed. But because she has ample breasts and thick hips and thighs, it’s an issue? So we should fault an outstanding teacher because of her body style?

Check out some of Patrice “Tricey” Brown’s photos – in and out of the classroom – below by clicking “Next.” She’s definitely hot, and doesn’t seem to be wearing anything inappropriate while at school.
