@mepayne:  The last two are, you’ll probably find the first one is a bit too low i.e if you were to bend down

The first one, NO.  The second two, sure.

I would put a camisole under the first one, but they are definitely appropriate.  Im a teacher.  Basically it is acceptable where I work to wear small cap sleeves or even sleeveless tops as long as the shoulders are covered and the girls are not showing at all 🙂

I am a teacher and I agree the first one is a no but the bottom two are a yes.  A good general rule of thumb is to bend over in front of the bathroom mirror and make sure everything is still covered.  You will be bending over all day, so you’re going to want to make sure you’re okay.  I personally am a fan of short sleved button up collared shirts.

@mepayne:  First one, no (if you can see any hint of boob). Last two are. I wear #3 most days.

@mepayne:  To the pants, it depends on your shape and underwear. If you are a 0 or 2 and can’t see your underwear, yes. If you aten’t, tge go a little loser. You’ll be bending, on you knees, andsitting on the floor. Go for something high waisted enough that your underwear will never show.

The first top would be okay with a camisole underneath.

Fitted pants are okay, as long as “fitted” doesn’t mean “tight.”

In addition to making sure tops aren’t too low-cut when bending over, also check the space between your shirt and your pants; when I lift my arms up to write on the board, I always want to make sure my shirt doesn’t hike up. So it’s a matter of making sure the tops are long enough or the pants come up high enough.

It’s great you are giving this a lot of thought ahead of time (I remember in college being shocked by what some girls wore student-teaching!). Five years into teaching, there are still times when I wear something to work thinking it’s cute, but as I move around during the day, I decide to make it a weekend-only outfit.

Also wear comfortable shoes. I LOVE heels (and I am short and look young so I want the extra height at work), but I keep a cute pair of flats in my desk to change into mid-day.

If your school has chalkboards, I’d suggest getting those foam pads that are designed to erase deodorant marks; they work really well for getting chalk out! (My first year of teaching I felt like I was constantly covered in chalk!)

I would wear them and I am a School Counselor! Very cute! Maybe just a white cami under the first one?
