I believe that children are our future....

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!

Badly.

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!

Super cute! I heart J. Crew. You also may be able to mix in some Ann Taylor Loft pieces. Adoreable & they offer a teacher discount!:)

I like J. Crew, but not their prices so much. I think Ann Taylor Loft is the place to go. I'm pretty sure they have some kind of discount program for teachers too.

I don't think you can mess them up too much in kindergarten...now first grade is another story. I never taught first grade because I figured that all through the rest those kids' lives people would say, "Oh yeah...I know what's wrong with him...he had Mrs. FREEMAN for first grade." Seriously, I worried.

Love the look, my friend. And how did I miss the news flash that you are going back to work to teach??? Man, my head is in the clouds lately. (Plus my cable/internet have been out a lot the past couple of weeks... LIke I have no internet for days at a time. They better have that shit fixed this time. Yeah, you hear me Cable Provider?!?!? It's SPRING BREAK, with no t.v. for the kids and no computer for Mommy. Are you CRAZY??? You pick THIS week to work on the cable lines??? Okay, I feel better. Thanks. And that's what I'm blaming my dumbassness on, anyway.)

Perfect look. It doesn't really matter what you do as long as you look good doing it. Ha
