My Nasty Gumboots
Teachers are supposed to keep their nose clean in front of their students. But how do you define proper "behaviour"? Look at me, I got two piercings on my right ear, and I thought it was rough to get such stuff. Imagine having a visible, reddish henna tattoo on your right ankle after a week wandering around Kuala Lumpur?
Hey, I wear loose-fitting shirts and jeans with my favorite pairs of flats or chucks to school. But sometimes I feel like instructors who wear short "kilts" and dresses look more nasty because they seem to be distracting young adults' attention-if you got what I meant. Well, I think I'm too casual though which isn't cool either. In my opinion, attitude is more important than any attire in front of the sophomores. Say, if you wear a "tutu", make sure you won't keep pulling it down while scribbling the alphabet on the white board. In case of blue jeans, shirts with flat sling-backs, and sneakers are admissible, as long as you don't look ruggish and sound boorish.
So, I guess dress code isn't a big deal especially in the field of teaching "grown ups". Most companies require their employees to wear business casual at work. Personally, I am not in favor with this obsolete idea, because the more I feel "awkward" with what I'm "donned", the less productive I could be. This might be some of my " lamest" excuses for being too "blithe" on stage. But believe me, it makes a huge difference painting your own wall of fashion style.
