    I teach in an inner city college and always wear a shirt and tie. I don't do that to impress anyone, I do it because it makes me feel like a professional.

    It also does make a difference to how you are perceived by the learners, if you look like a professional then you are treated like one.

    Some of my peers dress like their day job could be standing still in the middle of a field of wheat, trust me, teenagers do notice this and interpret it as teachers not being bothered to try, so why should they try?

    Poor dress is just another example of falling standards and it all comes together to present a general downward trend. It all counts and we need to realise this and reverse the trend toward mediocrity.

    I prefer to wear work clothes for work, and home clothes for home. Nice to change when I get home so I feel that I have left the work place behind me.
