I believe that jeans are ok in the classroom if they're dark denim or trouser jeans. I don't believe tank tops are appropriate, but have seen women wear sleeveless blouses that look professional, espeically in hot climates without air conditioning. Trainers are a sticky subject; if they're clran and dark, they can often work. Teachers, like nurses, spend a lot of time on their feet and need to be comfortable.
What do you think?
Are casual clothes ok for teachers? What do you typically wear to work?
