One of the things we cover in the student teaching orientation meeting each
semester is the evaluation form used by the cooperating teacher and the
university supervisor in assessing the student teacher's performance in the
classroom. The first item on the form is "appearance." I encourage the
student teachers (to be) to see it as one thing they can easily control.
While I'm not a "suit-and-tie" man myself, I encourage those going into the
schools to dress appropriately and comfortable (particularly with the
shoes). If that means on some days they "dress down," wear jeans, etc.,
because of what's happening in the classroom or school so be it. But, I
remind them to not necessarily use their cooperating teacher as a role
model in terms of dress...they don't have to impress anyone...and they HAVE
a job.
