This Middle School Teacher Is Also A High-End Fashion Model At Night (Photos)

Last week, we ran a story on Pietro Boselli, the mathematics professor who moonlights as a high-fashion model.

Today, we introduce his competition: 24-year-old middle school teacher-cum-high fashion model, Sam Pearce.

Pearce, who teaches eighth-grade English at a Bushwick middle school, was discovered last summer on the F train in New York by a fellow male model.

After attending an open casting call on a whim, Pearce signed on with Manhattan-based agency RED NYC under the pseudonym Sam Worthen; his first paid gig was in January of this year.

The following month, he walked for several major labels during New York Fashion Week, including DKNY and Alexander McQueen.

Though he's been modeling steadily since being discovered, Pearce's true passion is teaching — and, he insists, he will always put his duty as an educator first.

The Massachusetts native told the New York Daily News,

I will never accept a modeling job that compromises my students' learning.

With the money he raises from modeling, Pearce buys books and supplies for his students; additional funding is amassed through a GoFundMe page.

Pearce was discovered by a fellow model while on the subway.

"I was flattered, surprised and just doubtful of his taste," he says.

Still, he visited an open casting call weeks later.

He was signed on to the RED NYC agency, and began modeling in January.

But teaching always comes first. "There are so many models who can do a job with equal results," he says.

He uses the money he earns from modeling to buy supplies for his students.

So he's smart, gorgeous and caring...

...and we're in love.
