Teachers of children of all ages have a unique setting to work in.  Some teachers may find it difficult to determine their own professional image on the job, when surrounded by the latest fashion trends of their students.  Instead of struggling to find footing in the realm of how to present to administration, peers, students and parents, considering some of the tips found here and using BooJee Beads style can help to create a unique image in the workplace.

Lanyards and badge holders are widely used on campuses all over the world.  These tools are handy, affordable and useful for holding classroom keys, employee identification or other small items.  Teachers can become more organized through the use of lanyards and badge holders; but may not realize just how much these tools can improve image in the classroom.

When looking for your own unique teacher style, think first of how you wish to be perceived.  This could be different based on who you interact with.  You want your students to feel comfortable with you; but also see you as an authority to respect and look up to.  Teaching small children, the elementary teacher could incorporate decorative lanyards and badge holders featuring colors and themes small children are drawn to. 

With the styles of BooJee Beads, you can wear employee identification or classroom keys in perfect style, and feel great about your professional look at work.  Whether the day consists of meetings with peers or parents, or a day spent in front of the class, you want to feel as though you fit into the image you have of yourself on the job. 

It is recommended that teachers wear comfortable clothing, especially because they are on their feet most of the day.  However, comfort does not equal overly casual.  To compliment your BooJee Beads lanyards, maintain your professional image with comfortable slacks over jeans and conservative shoes over flip flops or sandals that are more fitting for a day at the park.

Dressing for the classroom could include slacks or khaki’s.  Dresses and skirts for women may be comfortable and make you feel very good at work.  When this is the case, the overwhelming response is “go for it”!  However, dressing up is not the aim; being professional and comfortable is the goal for any teacher. 

When you approach your professional attire, just remember that comfort does not come only in the form of loose jeans or oversized sweaters.  Remember that, although your primary audience is a group of youngsters, there are other eyes on you as a teacher.  When put in the situation of meeting with parents, a teacher must present n a way that shows they are in charge at all times and the person to count on when it comes to a child’s learning process. 

Much is stated by the way a person dresses.  So while the classroom is not your runway, it is important to take professional image into account each and every day.
