So here's a question. I've been on temporary contracts for the last three years. Although I've been hired back at my same position each time, I still apply at various places and go through interviews. I want to do a fantasy hair color over the summer. I'd never do it during the school year because of the distraction. If I have a band-aid on or a piece of jewelry that I've never worn before, my students can't focus on anything else. I got new glasses this year and for weeks all they wanted to talk about was why I changed my glasses. So, the summer seems like a good time to do something fun like purple hair. But, it's also interview season. I'm wondering how badly it might hurt me. Obviously I'd go back to a conservative color to go back to school, but I'm not sure explaining that would convince an interview panel. On the other hand, maybe people are more liberal than I'm expecting. We have a lot of teachers with visible tattoos these days, but most of them are permanent contracts and not in danger of losing their jobs over such things. Thoughts?
