    Clothes don't make the person...

    I sat and thought a long time about what I was going to wear this year. It is my first year and I too, look rather young. I am teaching 4th, so its not that close in age. BUT during my ST, I kept saying to myself that I have to get new clothes to look older and I have to fix my hair so that I look older. You know what, I wore the same clothes that I always wore (nice of course) and didn't change my hair, and I was respected and treated like an adult. I wore capris, khakis, black pants, etc.

    I think it has more to do with you attitude and rapport you have with the kids. Worry about what you look like infront of the kids, not the staff. If you worry about the staff, you will just end up being unhappy. Heck, they hired you for you. Be yourself.
