Teachers are no different from students, they have rules they have to go by too. They have to wear certain things every day of the week. Monday through Wednesday is business casual, and from Thursday to Friday they can wear jeans, but they have to wear spirit shirts for Dobie or the college they went to.
Just like students, teachers have things they wish they could change about their dress code. “We should have coaches attire, you know things like t-shirts, wind pants, things like that ,” said Coach Driffill. Even though he would like to change some things, he still believes that it’s better with the dress code.
Mrs. Reed, science teacher, wishes she could have nose piercings, but she can’t because of the teacher dress code .Teachers still have to follow dress code for after school activities also. “Not a lot of people have good style and I don’t want to see what people are going to wear on Friday nights,” said Mrs. Reed. “The student dress code is better because they get to wear jeans whenever they want to,” said Mrs. Reed.
Teachers have different opinions about student dress code and their own. “I think the student dress code is appropriate for their age” says, science teacher, Mrs. Altamirano, “The dress code is professional and the casual Friday’s are a little bit too casual for some teachers.” She said. “If I could change the dress code I would allow teachers to have unnatural hair colors,” said Mrs. Altamirano.
