I am getting VERY excited about my new adventure as a teacher. I take my EC-4 test on May 6, start my classes on April 18 and hopefully will have a job by June. Fingers crossed.
I have been studying and love every thing that I am learning. Love it! I was born to do this! And yes teachers reading this, I WANT TO TEACH KINDERGARTEN!
But the one thing that I have been struggling with is this.
What "look" do I want to have as a teacher? It has been plaguing my thoughts. Keeping me up at night, and running through my dreams when I actually do sleep.
Being out of the work force for 4 years, I have no "work" clothes. And not to brag or anything, but when I was working I was a size 8 and now I am a 4 or a 6. Hold on, let me pat myself on the back....
OK, I'm back.
SO, this clothing issue was a big one. I wanted cute, comfortable, and I want to have a signature teaching look. Thanks to J. Crew, problemo solved.
I am going to go with the preppy teacher look. Dresses, cardigans and ballet flats. How cute am I going to be?
I might screw up a bunch of kids, but I am going to look GOOD doing it!
