Dress Code

The reality of life is a person can be judged by, among other things, the way they dress. This especially has a significant impact in the teacher/student arena. A "cool dresser" may impress the students; giving the sense that the teacher is just one of the guys (girls) and cultivating "friendly" relationships that eventually come back to haunt you later.

The wisest step for clinical teachers would be to always consult their mentor about the dress code of the school. Variance from the appropriate campus or district dress practices can adversely influence the opinion and/or impression that administrators, other teachers, and parents may have about the teacher in question.
