I know you've all answered the question, "What's appropriate attire for a preschool teacher?" already. You all answered it well but I would like to ask from a male's perspective what kind of clothes should I invest in? The other day was a water day at a school I'm volunteering at to get experience. I felt so wrong going there in shorts. Mostly I wear Jeans and a button down plaid printed shirt. However I think I should be more professional when I finally get a job. I'm thinking Dickies, black and tan and a button down short sleeve shirt in summer and long sleeve in winter.
