    Clothes are secondary

    I too took pains to make sure my dress was very professional when I was just starting out. My first day teaching I was stopped in the hall for not having a pass...It was a middle school. If you're going through what I did, the real concern was how could I control the students if I looked like one of them. Professionalism is more than your clothes, it's your attitude. Trust your training and your skill. You are the adult, you are the one in charge. Don't dress for church or the bar, and remember that YOU are the teacher in charge!

    Good luck - I'm 38 and still getting carded. Trust me, you'll appreciate the youthfullness....
