Hello to All, I was just in the "In what area do you teach" thread, and thought about a basic connection we may share: Do your kids wear uniforms?? Is it full garb..head to toe, matching hair barrettes for girls, ties for boys, down to their, white socks and black-shoes-only? Or is it yuppie style with the polo shirt and khaki pants. One school where I worked made the teachers wear uniforms too! You always knew when some stranger was in the building or on the playground. Are they strict about uniform code? No dress, sent to office? Or do you have a closet with extras, and they get a note home? Are your parents required to purchase uniforms from the school, or can they buy them from regular stores?? I teach pre-k, and I have seen in on our level too! Personally, I think it is a little harsh. Can't run, play, explore and get messy in a plaid wool skirt! But you know they do! And tear up lots of tights in the process!
