I am a new substitute looking to build a great report with other teachers. I hope to become a full fledged teacher within 2 years. I was having trouble deciding on my wardrobe and accessory purchases so here is what I came up with. Several slacks, blazers, button down shirts + a few ties. I figures with several color choices I will be good to go with 1-2 days of subbing a week. I had some friends say to not look to snooty dressed but hey, I love the look of blazers with slacks and no tie, it is so classy IMO and I want the other teachers to know that I am serious. Do any substitutes carry a messenger bag? I have read sub's should not carry anything but then I thought why not?
