How Educator's Dress for Work: Perception is Everything

Educators-Dress to Impress

"In all professions each affects a look and an exterior to appear what he wishes the world to believe that he is."
It is my personal opinion that educators are professionals, who should dress "professionally" at school. I was inspired to write this blog post today because of the passionate responses I received from one of my tweets.
