Earlier tonight I was talking about a 16-year-old who went viral on TikTok for being the youngest teacher in the US, Shania Shakura Muhammad.

The video was shared by The Shade Room on their Instagram page:

Last year, she went viral for her day job as a teacher when her dad shared on his account revealing Shania as the “youngest full-timed salaried teacher in the United States”.

Now at 16, her video got so much love online after she recently joined the “I Am” TikTok trend.

Shania was also on the Hudson Show:

When asked about her age and her accomplishments, Shania shares in a video that the top reaction she gets is,

“No, you’re not.” 

Shania then continues saying:

“I’m a 16-year-old teacher, anytime I tell someone I’m a 16-year-old teacher. They always ask,” How do parent-teacher conferences go?” I’m a 16-year-old. Sixteen-year-olds can drive. I drive to work. I don’t get dropped off. Of course, people are going to doubt my ability to do my job.” 

So even when if people doubt it, she’s got her degrees and certification on her side!
