we’re taking you back to school this Monday morning with sexy Jamaican-American high school teacher and model Ricardo Christian. We’d love him to teach us about the birds and the bees.

“Growing up, my family life was really eclectic,” says Ricardo, who moved from D.C.’s inner city to the suburbs and eventually to Jamaica when he was a child. “I have experience with a lot of different cultures.”

Ricardo has taught teens with learning and behavioral challenges for two years and says he loves his students. We don’t know how those school girls can concentrate with a teacher this fine.

“I was always awkward and nerdy with no attention given to me at all,” Ricardo remembers of growing up.

It wasn’t until he played college football that he added some sexy muscle mass to his thin frame. Since then, he’s been the center of attention.

Born February 15, Ricardo is a true Aquarius, with many moods. “Sometimes I’m emotional and sensitive and other times I’m really withdrawn. Then I’m joking around in the next moment,” he explains.

Ricardo’s sensitive side makes him a hopeless romantic who makes every day Valentine’s Day. “When I’m in a relationship I take notes of the things she likes,” he dishes. “I just like being a thoughtful person.”

“I like getting lost in a moment with a loved one, not being concerned with what’s going on outside of us,” Ricardo tells us. “It makes me feel like I’m invincible with this person.”

“I like a challenge,” Ricardo confesses. “I like women who have a little bit of a barrier, who are not just open to the world.”

“I just love kissing a set of full lips and just looking at them,” Ricardo muses. Keep that Chapstick handy, ladies.

Ricardo appreciates a woman who knows she’s beautiful by nature. “I like un-tailored natural beauty — when you alter it, you can tell.”

And the easiest way to see this teacher walk through the emergency exit doors is having a lack of patience. “That’s such a big turn-off that when that happens, it’s usually a wrap,” he says.

“I’m turned on by someone who is really attentive to what I’m thinking and how I feel,” he spills. “Someone who is not afraid to show affection in any situation.”

Ricardo says women always compliment him on his eye lashes. We think he’s being bashful. What about those pecs, that washboard stomach, those strong arms, etc.
