Miss Harper’s unyielding commitment to the cause of education has led her to transform the back of her trusty Honda Element SUV into a mobile alphabet classroom, providing an unconventional opportunity for high-speed language studies.

Harper’s unique teaching aid comes in the form of alphabet magnets meticulously arranged across the rear of her vehicle. The Honda badge, now serving as the proud representative of the letter ‘H,’ is flanked by an array of magnetic letters populating the tailgate.

The strategically placed license plate, bearing the letters ‘QRTSTUV,’ adds a linguistic challenge to those motorists who enjoy playing the number plate game.
