A primary school teacher who lost her job after a video of her twerking went viral has lashed out at her former employer, insisting they ‘get with the 21st century’.

The 24-year-old teacher, known only as Miss Clarissa, was on holiday in Baja California, Mexico, when she decided to enter a dance competition at a beachfront bar.

Dancing on stage in a bikini in front of a cheering audience, she unleashes her raunchiest dance moves and even attempts to dance on the lap of one of the judges.

“I knew there were mobile phones but I never imagined this would go viral and anyway, I’m not doing anything bad,” she told local news outlet Reforma.

Watch video:

“It was a dance competition, something like this doesn’t define me as a person, it was my free time and we’re in the 21st century.

“It’s not something to be afraid of, I’m not naked, I’m not having sex or taking drugs or disrespecting anyone.’

Miss Clarissa was on her Easter break at the time of the controversial dance, about 16 hours drive away from her work place in Sonora.

When the video was published on a local news Facebook page, it quickly spread and she was identified by a parent who made an official complaint.

“Someone identified me a teacher as the video reached more and more people and immediately related it to my work and published photos of me with my pupils.

“They didn’t give me any other option at my school than to resign. I felt I was being attacked and put under pressure. I didn’t know what else to do apart from leave as quickly as I could.

“I’m a human being like everyone else and at times people believe your profession defines you and you don’t have a life outside of your job, that you don’t have friends or family or free time.

“We’re not all saints and you can’t judge a person and question their reputation and their job over something like this.”

Cumbre del Noroests Institute, where Miss Clarissa taught for three years, insisted the teacher had resigned for “personal reasons”.

Parents of students have inundated the school’s Facebook page with messages of support for Clarissa, demanding the school reinstate her.

“Please reconsider the termination of the young teacher, Miss Clarissa! She was dancing! I am sixty years old and have seen all kinds of dancing come and go. Miss Clarissa is beautiful, young, and a free spirit. Plus…she was on her free time enjoying life!” one woman wrote.

One man gave the school a one-star rating, saying: “As a parent I wish the teacher Clarissa return to work, her personal life is none of our business. Parents do not ask [her] to leave.”

A petition has been started in support of Miss Clarissa, calling for her to be given her job back and – for those who are wondering – she won the dance competition in Baja California.

This could be the most bizarre wedding ever.

Two hairless cats have ‘tied the knot’ for a very heartbreaking reason.

Smitten kittens Christie and Lily wed in a pub beer garden in St Helens, Merseyside, at a ceremony with a difference.

Drinkers watched the unusual nuptials at The Windle pub and after days of preparation the the ‘couple’ married to raise money for five-year-old Kaycee Turner who suffers from a rare brain condition called Batten’s disease.

Owenr Marialaina Ashcroft, who is known as ‘crazy cat lady, as she has eight moggies, arranged the event and even gave her beloved pets away on their big day.

Marialaina told the Liverpool Echo : “Everyone in our community is aware of Kaycee’s condition and I just wanted to do something to help.”

She approached her local “pet friendly pub“ when she had the idea and they helped organise the whole thing to give the happy couple the wedding they deserve.

She said “My boyfriend and I would often take Christie to the pub with us and everyone adores him. He goes with me a lot of the time when I go out.”

Marialaine added: “I have two Sphynx and six moggys and I adore every single one of them.

“Christie has the most character. He’s a naughty boy, he torments them all but he makes me laugh out loud every single day, he makes me so happy.”

“My two sphynx’s always get loads of attention when I take them out in their pram. I’m interested in photography and I’m always taking funny videos of them.”

Marialaina says her friends are always commenting on her love for her pets and have praised her for putting her own unique spin on traditional fundraising.

The wedding was organised to support five-year-old Kaycee, who travels with her family every two weeks to Great Ormond Street Hospital in order for her to receive enzyme treatment that could prolong her life.

Marialaina said: “I didn’t raise as much money as I had hope but the look on Kaycee’s face when she saw the cats dressed up was completely worth it all.

“I’m glad they brought her as much joy as they bring me.”

Kaycee, from Sutton in St Helens, is no longer able to talk due to the condition and is currently undergoing enzyme treatment at Great Ormond Street hospital to increase her life expectancy.

Her family are currently travelling to London every two weeks for her to receive her treatment and the community have come together to help the family afford the trips.

Marialaina said: “The Windle pub graciously let me use their back garden to host the wedding and we had face painters there to turn everyone into cats for the day.

“I just wanted to do something fun and a little bit different for Kaycee. She’s a wonderful little girl and she deserves all the help in the world.”

Although Kaycee could not attend the entire day, she was able to make an appearance at the reception.

Marialaina said: “Her face was a picture and although we only raised £100, it was worth it to see that smile when she walked in.

“I would like to keep doing stuff to help raise funds for the family so any weird or wonderful ideas would be appreciated.”
