    clothes for the classroom

    I buy a few pairs of pants that I can mix and match with shirts and cotton sweaters. I think that buying some pants in basic colors such as black, navy blue, and white help stretch your wardrobe a bit since they can be matched with so many other colors and give you more outfits to choose from.

    Many of the teachers I have worked with have worn khaki pants. It has almost been like a uniform, and some teachers even show up with the same khaki pants as others. These pants are comfortable and practical for working with elementary schoolchildren, especially when you're going to sit on the floor and do something with the kids. You don't want to spend much money on what you buy, since you might get stains on them from markers, etc.

    As for where I shop, I live in North Carolina, and I like to shop at Dillard's and Belk's for clothing. Dillard's carries teacher-style clothing (the little school buses, etc.). Another store that carries teacher clothing is Peebles, if you have one in your area.
