I usually have always dressed in jeans and t shirts for work, as it is a get down on the floor, get your hands dirty kind of job. More recently I've taken to dressing more professionally, good shoes, dark pants, good cuts, button up blouses, no cleavage on any end. No jewelry. But our program feels it's much better to have us wear smocks. Like these Now I don't consider these professional at all. In fact, I think it downgrades the profession entirely, cheapening our appearance and bringing our level of appearance down to a fast food restaurant level of appearance. But Administration insists on them. Appearances aside, climate control in our center is broken and will not be repaired any time soon. The smocks are very hot and hard to wear in hot, closed classrooms. Does anyone have an experience with this sort of thing? And how do you feel about it? Is it good? Would you like something different? Do you have something different? I'd like to hear it.
