I had a lot of girls in my class last year in third grade that were into fashion. I had 4 boys and 12 girls! Oh the DRAMA! If I wore something cute/stylish to school they seemed better behaved, and more willing to learn. This even seemed to work for the boys. If I wore something kind of plain like slacks and a polo shirt they were not so keen. I tested this theory out several times. I even brought it up to my team mate who tested out the same theory in her classroom of mostly boys. We never let the kids know what we were doing. I'm watching "What not to wear" and they are working with teachers today, so it inspired me to make this post. I really do think it impacts the students if you are dressed nicely. Do your students react to what you are wearing?
