Let’s start with the obvious: teachers are on a budget. We want to look nice and represent ourselves well, but we need to do so frugally. How do some teachers ALWAYS look so put together if they’re on a budget?! There are tons of teachers out there who find deals on clothing and accessories, and lucky for us, they’re willing to share these tips with their IG followers!

Teaching styles in the classroom differ from class to class, so it goes without saying that teachers’ clothing styles are also different from one another. Some teachers feel most comfortable dressing in skirts and a blouse, while others do their best teaching in leggings and a sweater. We also all know a teacher who prefers to go all out in character costumes! There is no right or wrong way to put together your teaching wardrobe.
