Last year, after the first week, I wore blue jeans, polo, and black sneakers every day. This year we have a new P and under dress code it says, “Dress professionally.” During our 1st faculty meeting, he said it didn’t mean teachers had to be decked out but he also said teachers should be able to figure out what it means to dress professionally. He said as long as it didn’t look like we were coming straight from working out, or mowing grass, or coming from a party, we’d be ok. Of course, that doesn’t answer my question of “professional dress.” During in-service week, I wore a button-up short-sleeve shirt, black dress pants, and dress shoes. One of my co-workers told me to “tone it down.” . The only problem is I would do straight from that to polos and blue jeans. No middle of the road wardrobe and I can’t afford to go buy khakis or other shoes now. The PE teachers and coaches all wear shorts. That would not fly as a classroom math teacher but would polos and jeans everyday be ok?
