21-year-old teacher in the Philippines will have you begging for detention

If evil teachers such as Harry Potter's Dolores Umbridge and Maltida's Miss Trunchbull are the stuff of nightmares, then Kheny Soliva Berco from the Philippines is a heaven-sent goddess.

She also happens to be very much real, as her FHM feature can tell you.

The 21-year-old beauty graduated last month with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, majoring in Early Childhood Education at the University of St. La Salle.

During her internship, she spent three months as a student teacher at the St. John Institute, where she lectured young children and even introduced them to dabbing.

Asked why she chose to go into education, Kheny told FHM Philippines that she has always loved the thought of "giving young people the best start in life".

She said, "I can't think of any job as important to society as teaching. I know being a pre-school teacher is not an easy job, but it is what I love."

Kheny's favourite subject growing up was the arts.

She added, "I love to draw, paint, and recycle stuff. These creative skills help me in preparing visual aids and coming up with new ways to teach my students."

What makes her even more intriguing to other people is her choice of pet -- a snake.

Kheny's reptile companion is "always by her side, whether she's sleeping or writing lesson plans."

"People always find me weird for having a snake in the house, but why not? I love my Damian more than anything on this planet and I think he's adorable," she said.

With almost 138,000 followers on Facebook and over 18,200 on her now private Instagram account, it's not hard to see why Kheny is becoming such a hot favourite.
