His name is Vitor Lucas, he is a professor of Portuguese in the town of Belo Horizonte the Brazil and he had a rather creative idea to entertain his students. In addition to rendering notes with the classic 10 out of 10 system (or 20) he had the idea to attribute pictures of singer Gretchen more or less happy depending on whether your note is very good or very bad.
You may not know Gretchen and that's normal. It is a Brazilian singer popularized in the 70s with its title "Rainha do Bumbum” ("Queen Butt" in English, we'll let you guess the level of the song). Always active, she is often shot inderision on the Internet and in this way, has entered a little more into the culture of the Brazilians.

The idea of this teacher was shared by @Skingrier, one of his students, whose message was still retweeted 28,000 times for more 43,000 favorites. Like what, we can always innovate in education and networks are good ways to democratize these ideas that really entertain and interest everyone. And from a point of view purely educational, let's bet that the photo of Gretchen who is really the head will remain marked in the pupil's head longer than a pointed zero.
