Supermodel and former America's Next Top Model host Tyra Banks is adding 'teaching' to her resume. According to the Wall Street Journal, Tyra will be lecturing about 25 students for two weeks at Stanford's Graduate School of Business in May next year.

"I'm beyond excited to teach," Tyra tweeted. "It's in my blood and I can't wait to meet my students."

And while she will conduct classes on how to create and maintain brands, she will not however, be teaching students how to 'smize'.

Classes haven't even started yet but the first assignment's already been announced and it's called 'Project You: Building and Extending your Personal Brand'. Students will be asked to "create a short video introducing both themselves and the vision for a brand" for the project. 

We're sure that Tyra will be a fun teacher but that doesn't mean that she's going to be easy on you when you're not paying attention. "If I see somebody not paying attention, I'm gonna call on them," she said. Don't say she didn't warn you!
