Classroom StylePosted: August 19, 2014 | |
Yesterday was my first day of teaching in the new school year, so I reached for my ever-trusty schoolmarm skirt. I almost paired it with a white button-up, but decided that it would be too “school girl” instead of “schoolmarm”, so I went with this shirt instead. One of my style resolution for this academic year is to dress more professionally. Yeah, we’re a liberal art school, but I find that by overdressing a bit, I can have more confidence to assert my authority in the classroom. And I’m going to need that authority this year – aside from my usual directing class, I’m taking on another graduating screenwriting class. The idea is that since they are graduating, I won’t have to work with them as much, and it would be easier on me as a new instructor. However, after one session, I have a feeling that I’m going to have to work extra hard with them to hopefully undo all the bad habits they’ve accumulated over the past three years. Fun times.
