Teacher Attire I will soon begin student teaching (eek!) and am gathering some professional clothing such as slacks, low/comfortable heels and wedges, nice tops, sweaters, etc. I know many teachers tend to dress more casually than this, but I figure it is important to make an impression, especially since I also look young. However, it it a bad idea to out-dress the teacher I will be working with? This happened frequently when I did some practicum work in classrooms last year. I want to look professional and respectable, but not like I am trying too hard. While I know some teachers wear jeans, I would never do so as a student teacher. Are heels with slacks too much? What do you think?
