Whew! We got the first day over with and it was pretty smooth. I never sleep well the night before though, so I was running on adrenaline. I teach six 50 minute classes with 4 minutes between each one and a 20 minute lunch halfway through. I was tired at the end of the day. I didn’t cook because I decided we would do take out Mediterranean from near our house – chicken kabobs, rice, Greek salad. Yum!
I like to wear a dress on the first day and I like to wear something new if I can. This dress did not disappoint. It comes in 26 different colors/patterns. The material is super soft, it has pockets, and it has two slits on either side that go up to the knee. I didn’t have to hem it, so that was nice too. I think it runs true to size. My other color is plain olive and I think that will look good in the fall. I will have to avoid buying more. Check them out and let me know what you think. Amazon fashion is pretty good. I’m afraid I won’t even leave the house before long because of Amazon.
I can’t believe I have been doing this job for so long. Every year seems different, though. I hope that I’m still as effective if not more effective each year. I started at the young age of 22 and I was so naive. I will be 47 this fall. Time really goes by quickly.
These are the shoes I started the day in. I lasted about 4 hours and could’ve gone longer, but knew my feet would hurt later. These are from Amazon and by Corky’s Boutique. They are quite comfortable, but teacher comfortable is a whole other level. They come in camo and I was oh so tempted. What do you think?
These are the shoes I changed into. My faux Target Birkenstocks in rose gold have been great!
Here are my most comfortable teacher shoes. They are both by Dansko and both several years old from consignment stores. They are kind of ugly but both pass the all day teacher test.
Maybe it’s a sign I’m getting older, but I just can’t wear uncomfortable shoes anymore. Even to do weekend activities I want comfortable footwear. Last weekend on the Urban Bourbon Trail, we did about 3 hours of walking or standing. I decided to wear the gold Tieks flats because I didn’t want to get grouchy.
What are your most comfortable shoes? I want my shoes to be cute and comfortable, but for teaching on my feet all day, I can sacrifice some degree of cuteness.
Here is my classroom all ready to go.
Here is my observation of the typical high school girl outfit:
jeans, Birkenstocks, v-neck t-shirt with bralette showing
So, now you know.
Thanks for stopping by!
