Lawdddd so finally Atlanta Public Schools has released a statement anddddddd they say she is not even a real teacher. She’s a paraprofessional.
Now, no offense to any paraprofessionals who read my blog. However… Paras are not teachers. She hasn’t taken (or passed) her certification tests. Just like CNAs are not nurses. Did you pass the NClex? We thank you for your services but let’s be honest about our job roles.
Like me, I could say that I am Claims IT Specialist. But we all know that I work at a call center and that in the grand scheme of things, I am a CSR (customer service representative).
Here is the article where I got my tea. “Atlanta Public Schools can confirm that Patrice Brown is a paraprofessional employed with the district. She was given guidance regarding the APS employee dress code, the use of social media, and Georgia Code of Ethics for Educators, and she has been cooperative in addressing her presence on social media.”
The teachers I know, don’t wear heels everyday. I mean I barely want to wear heels to church where I’ll be sitting 70% of the time. I damn sure wouldn’t wear them to walk around helping kids learn common core math all day long. But hey, if she wanna do that then she can!
Let me just say this…
I saw no problem with her attire until I saw that pink body con dress. Why couldn’t she wear a blazer or a cardigan?
No one is saying that she needs to wear a kaftan or a parachute but that pink dress was not work appropriate. It was too tight. Those ripples across the thighs gave it away.
I’m not even hating. She’s pretty and has a nice shape then she went to an HBCU. If I was her size, I’d be wearing dresses from Fashion Nova too. But not at work!
Also… when did teachers start looking like this? My 4th grade teacher had a turkey neck and a map on her legs.
I wish her the best and I hope she can milk this and start selling Flat Tummy Tea, teeth whitening kits and maybe even bundles!
So what do y’all think about her attire?
