Comfort During Standardized Testing: Surviving Teacher Fashion Dilemmas

This week has been our state standardized testing, otherwise known as the ISTEP. Much like other states, it’s rigorous for the students and teachers alike. In our state we must circulate the room for the entire testing time. That means a lot of standing and pacing, which can be difficult in heels or regular “work” shoes.

My room is actually tiled, so I will often either bring more comfortable shoes or wear my “most-worn-in” pair. Today I went with some pretty sandals.

It’s also important to be comfortable and, as usual, wear layers. Teachers never know what the building temperature will be! I chose a loose cotton sundress and a cardigan. I purposefully don’t wear any jewelry that will “clink” or “clang.” Clearly, after six long years, I’m a pro at this. (Haha)

Today’s outfit:

Dress- Old Navy cotton halter (old)
Cardigan- Old Navy (old)
Bracelet- Target
