Teacher Quits Her Job To Enter Miss Universe Beauty Pageant

by 3 months ago

In the time when it seems that teachers are getting fired left and right for inappropriate behavior with their students, it’s refreshing to see a teacher leave their job for a good cause instead of being forced to resign after being led out of the school in handcuffs. Maria Wilkes is a language teacher at Channing School, one of London’s top schools for girls. She has left her profession to pursue a chance at becoming a Miss Universe contestant.

Maria traded in blackboards for bikinis and now she is so close to competing in the Miss Universe contest. The 26-year-old beauty, whose mother is from Venezuela and dad from England, used to teach Spanish. Now she will compete against 38 hopefuls in a quest to be crowned Miss Universe Great Britain. Class is now in session.

Sunday sale shopping of course. Obsessed with these 70s style @zara trousers 😍✌🏼️
