She’s attracted a number of fans who refer to her as #teacherbae and she has over 200,000 followers on Instagram. 

But not everyone is a fan of her classroom fashion choices.

Commenters have been flooding her Instagram and Twitter accounts with comments about her outfit choices.

‘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,’ one tweet read. 

Another said: ‘She can still dress attractively, but should dress more modestly.’

Her supporters have come out in force though suggesting that Brown’s appearance has no bearing on her ability to teach. 

‘what’s wrong with her clothes? Her dress isn’t short, she’s not showing her chest, she just got curves no matter what she wears her curves are going to show.’ One of her Instagram followers wrote. 

What do you think? Should teachers have to tone down their look for the classroom?
