Does it look like the Good Example?
Professional dress is worth 10 points
Dress like a professional teacher—no blue jeans, low cut shirts, high skirts, or other dress that would be inappropriate for a teacher
A nice shirt with dress pants or slacks is fine.
If you do not have something nice to wear other than blue jeans, now is the time to start building a teacher wardrobe
If someone came to the door, would you be recognized as the teacher based on your dress?
Know your school dress code and be sure to follow it
