Teacher Quits Her Job To Enter Miss Universe Beauty Pageant

By 07.08.17

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.
