University of Northern Iowa Dept. of English Language and Literature student writing award of excellence for literary nonfiction/personal essay, 2008
Student teachers; Clothing and dress--Anecdotes;
I am finishing up the final day of my field experience in an English class filled with junior and senior high school students. I have a lesson prepared, so I leave my house plenty early in order to setup. I close the door behind me, breathing in the crisp October air, ready to take on whatever lies ahead. I am dressed from head to toe in a darling “teacher outfit” that I have reserved for this very day. A red turtleneck sweater, a brand-new black skirt (zipper included), a new pair of thigh-high panty hose, and a pair of black heels, compliments of my roommate.
