    I guessed you look around my age, which is 27.

    I have heard from another teacher with the same problem that starting to wear glasses solved it, just pick stern looking ones!

    I wouldn’t think you are a student! I guessed 28-30.

    kb7:  You look to be about 22-23! That should be a compliment OP 🙂 Come on… It has to feel good to be guessed looking younger than you are. I hear it comes in handy later in life!

    I’m 27 and people guess mid 30s… See… Could always be worse! Haha

    I would say 25 and take it as a compliment. I am 40 almost 41 and soo look like I am 20 something.  In fact last weekend I went out with a good friend who was in town and I got carded when ordered a drink.

    kb7:  i understand your frustration (i work college admissions and am often mistaken for a student). however, with the exception of the, “well don’t you look professional today!” (because that shit’s rude and condescending), it doesn’t sound like anyone else is being rude.

    the student at the copy room sounded like he was flirting at most, but not being rude. and the little girl…well, she probably just saw you outside drawing and wanted to be a part of it. she didn’t know it was a class, and she told you you’re pretty! score! she’s a kid, and you had to tell her to leave. of course she got an attitude 😉

    try not to take it personally. in fact, when you’re 60 and your peers look their age, you’ll be the bangin’ 40-year-old-lookin’ lady at the front of the classroom.

    kb7:  Ugh that’s annoying.  I’m 32 and I get carded 100% of the time and have a total baby face.  I’m a professional with a Master’s degree and sometimes I wish I could just pass for close to my age!  I used to teach college courses as well, and people always thought I was an undergrad until it became obvious I wasn’t.

    But really, think on the bright side.  Once we hit late 30s, 40s, and beyond, this is going to be awesome.

    FWIW I’d guess mid 20s, by the way.

    I’d take it as a compliment. I had initially guessed about 28 🙂
