    I need some advice about what to wear! I'm meeting with the other English teacher on Tuesday. I'm just coming in to chat with him and see how he runs his classes, what works well for him at the school, etc... I'm also going to be picking up my books and maybe doing a little work in my classroom sorting through things, seeing what I have, etc... I'm at a complete loss about what to wear! I don't own khakis and cannot find any I like. I went shopping today and tried a bunch of different ones and none of them worked. I have a weird body shape and am short so most pants have to be altered to fit right. I have tons of dress pants and tons of shorts. I have a pair of khaki shorts that are knee length and plenty of nice shirts but am wondering if that is too informal :confused: I am going to try a different mall on Monday so am hoping I can find some khakis there!

    Do you have a dark wash trouser jean?

    If you HAVE to do shorts, do them with a nice top and accessories, and a dressy shoe.

    I don't have a dark wash trouser jean but I do need to buy new jeans and know exactly what kind fit me best so that is definitely a possibility! I hadn't even thought of doing that.

    Right now I own two pairs of jeans and I ride in them so that is definitely not enough to last me a decent amount of time :lol:

    I met our new speech teacher the other day and I wore a school shirt and walking shorts. She had on capris and a dressy tank top.

    I personally would wear something that I already had, that was comfortable for you to work in your room. My school is pretty informal when not in session.

    As long as school is not in session, as in it is a PD day, I'd wear the shorts and a nice t-shirt but not too fancy. I'm always a filthy mess when I work in my room.

    I think shorts would be fine, especially since you plan on doing some work in your room. Teachers at my school dress very casually when school is not in session. A skirt could also work.

    I would not dress up too much - as the previous posts said, it's still summer and you ARE going to work in your classroom. Be comfortable :)

    Thanks, everyone! I think I'll definitely go with the shorts as you're right, Ohio is HOT. I'm also pretty sure the school doesn't have A/C. If they do it was definitely off when I went for my interview and my room is on the third floor :eek: I do have a whole wall of windows though so I'm definitely going to be getting some fans!

    When I go in during the summer or weekends I wear jeans and a t-shirt.

    Whenever I work during vacation (mainly during summer break) I always wear comfy clothes: shorts, t-shirt, & flip flops. Beginning Monday the 8th, teachers return to school for PD and other meetings. I will continue to wear my summer attire until school starts on the 15th. During the school year, though, I get dressed up each and every day.
