It seemed like it wasn’t just this new teacher’s students who couldn’t help but notice the lady’s dress. The teacher would hear children whispering as she walked past, and she felt as though she was always being stared at. On one occasion, the teacher even listened to a girl question why the woman was still wearing the dress. However, nobody ever asked her the question directly. Finally, enough was enough, and the topic of the dress had snowballed. The teacher finally opened up about her dress, and everyone was shocked when the answer was finally revealed. So what was the big deal?
The Proper Attire
All teachers are required to show up to school in the correct attire. Some schools have a uniform for their teachers while others don’t. That’s why many teachers need to plan their outfits in advance. Julia was one of these teachers.
Dressing for the Occasion
