    I live in Arizona also and I do agree that it is super hot. I have been at schools where we could wear jeans on Friday. At my new school, we can only wear jeans on certain Fridays and you have to wear your school shirt.
    Being teachers, our profession is already not respected or looked up to. The way we dress says alot about that. I do not feel that teachers should wear jeans, shorts or tank tops. What is that saying to our students? We can be cool and comfortable wearing capris, cute short sleeve shirts, and cute sandals. I have always heard that when you dress better you perform your job better. I am not saying that we should wear three piece suits, heels or hose (I don't wear that) but we should always look professional and want to be treated as professionals. Students can't take us serious if we are just like we are going to the beach or just hanging out.
