Love this! I always warn my interns/mentees that whatever they wear they need to make sure they can sit on the floor and the low step in front of the smartboard without flashing anyone! Also it needs to be something you can wash playdoh, paint, bright green gogurt, glitter glue, and body fluids out of. I have been splattered by all of the above! Was glad to have you mention your Dr. Seuss t-shirts - I thought the post was going to be a how-to!
Thanks, Rebecca! I want to provide stencils for my shirts, but I'm worried about copyright issues. I may have to do a how-to for how to use a book as the stencil - to trace.
I did a cat shoe search on Modcloth: http://www.modcloth.com/shop/search?keyword=cat&category=women%27s+shoe&commit=Search. My shoes aren't there anymore, but maybe they'll come back! :)
Great video! I agree about combining professional with fun, especially at the elementary level! It doesn't take much to get noticed. I often wear crazy bright socks and now many staff and students know me as the "crazy sock lady." It gives us something to talk about and a way to connect! :)
Thank you, Kayla! I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes to shake things up a bit. :)
