Verónica Duque, from Valladolid in Spain, is a fully dedicated teacher, who really makes sure her students understand the material and stay engaged during the lesson. For instance, she recently gave anatomy lesson in a full-body suit which maps out the human body, making sure the students learn the anatomy in sharp detail.
As she explains, she entered the classroom wearing a full-body suit that mapped out all the body parts, provoking mixed reactions like “confusion, shouts, applause and some covered their eyes.” “I’ve been teaching for 15 years now. I teach natural and social science, art, as well as English and Spanish. I was surfing the internet when an ad of an AliExpress swimsuit popped up. Knowing how hard it is for kids this young to visualize the disposition of internal organs, I thought it was worth it giving it a try,” she stated.
Michael, her husband, shared the photos on Twitter, with a caption. “Very proud of this volcano of ideas that I am lucky to have as a woman. Today she explained the human body to her students in a very original way. And the kids freaking out. Great Veronica !!!”
Needless to say, the photo went viral, reaching over 70,5K likes, 14K retweets, and 1.8K comments on Twitter. One person commented that ‘More teachers with that desire to teach are needed’, while another Twitter user pointed out that she had shown ‘total dedication to the profession’.
As Veronica herself explains, this isn’t the first time she is trying to be creative in class. In fact, she always does it, ever since she noticed that the students prefer visual aids to written text or spoken words.
