Teacher Strips Off To Teach Memorable Lesson About The Human Body


This Dutch teacher came up with a novel way to teach students about biology – she stripped.

In a completely legal way, of course. Biology teacher Debby Heerkens, from the Groene Hart Rijnwoude school, got on a desk at the front of class and stripped off her clothes, to reveal a spandex suit with an anatomically-correct depiction of where the organs are in the body.

She then continued stripping, revealing another suit with the body’s muscles, then another with the skeleton on.


Debby thought of this novel way to teach her ninth graders about the human anatomy after seeing a girl with similar leggings in the street. And she ran the idea past the headmaster before she went through with it.

She described the student’s reactions to CNN: “At first they were a little bit in shock because they thought “the teacher is taking off her clothes,” until they saw what was underneath”.

Biologie op Groene Hart Rijnwoude is echt supercool!!!
