Whatever Works: University Teacher Dresses As Spider Man To Engage Students

March 10, 2017


Seen here still failing to keep ol' blue shirt in the front row awake, this is a video about science teacher Moises Vazquez at The National Autonomous University of Mexico in Mexico City. Moises dresses like Spider Man before class to "help lighten the mood and capture the attention of his students." That's cool. For reference, none of my teachers ever dressed up like superheroes, and I'm beginning to resent them for it. Didn't you want me to learn?!

Vazquez's initial intention was to lighten the mood in his classes, and while there were mixed reactions at first, he soon noticed more relaxed and focused students. As Ben Parker says, "with great power comes great responsibility." Vazquez certainly uses both of his for good.

I mean, that sounds kinda convincing, but let's be honest: the man just likes dressing up as Super Man. And can you blame him? I'd dress up like a superhero every day if I could, but my company has a strict no costumes policy, presumably because they found out I'd been paying a stranger in an Iron Man mask to sit at my computer all day and nod at coworkers.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Linby, who agrees if you can dress like a superhero without getting fired, why wouldn't you?
