Kindy teacher quits to earn 'six figures' twerking for work

DREAMS are there to be chased.

For Jessica Vanessa, 22, that dream was making buckets of cash while shaking her butt on camera.

The kindergarten teacher quit her job to earn "six figures" by twerking.

"What I make is six seconds would take me four months to make as a teaching assistant," she told Barcroft TV.

The cash comes from advertiser products she mentions in the Vine videos.

Twerking hit the mainstream hard thanks to Miley Cyrus popularising the term.
 

Jessica Vanessa shakes her money maker:

FOX43 reported her brother acts as cameraman and her family has been supportive.

However she said online abuse has meant she has "suffered multiple breakdowns".

Jessica says she has now paid off her school debt, bought a new car and has no wish to rejoin the nine-to-five grind.

Besides, she seems to be doing OK with the grinding she does on camera.
