I'm an ECE student at the University of Georgia, and lately I've been trying to start my "teacher wardrobe" as I have the money to shop, etc. I'd like to teach first grade, but may possibly teach second or kindergarten, depending on job openings after I graduate. What kind of clothes are appropriate? I've never been great at getting dressed: I'm a tee-shirt and jeans kinda girl. Though I love the professional look, I'm not sure if I'd be over-dressed in a first grade classroom rocking a power suit from NY and Co. So what kinds of clothes do you suggest I buy for the lower elementary age?? Also as a side-note. I'm 5'5" and adore flats... but are pumps okay on occasion for such a young classroom, or will I want to stick to my flats to be more on their level?
