We've got spirit, yes we do. We've got spirit, how 'bout you?

A memo came down from the central office today regarding teacher dress code. Pardon me, but when I hear the words "teacher" and "dress code" tossed around in the same conversation I begin to panic and start looking around at my frayed collar and tie, my worn shoe leather, my ratty old briefcase, and my rope for a belt.

However, I can rest easy. This memo was basically saying that teachers need to cut back on spirit days. You see, a spirit day is when the teachers wear a shirt with the school's logo on it (bought with our own money, naturally) and jeans. The memo further stated that spirit days needed to be limited because there was some concern that teachers were not being professional enough.

Is that right? Teachers wearing embroidered polos and jeans have spelled the dark ages of our schools? I'm sure that's what the kid wearing the Slayer t-shirt thinks. As a matter of fact I think he muttered, "How can I study with all this unprofessional spirit going on? Gawd!" before he put his head on his desk.

Funny--I always thought having 33 kids in a single classroom was unprofessional. But, there I go again with my priorities all out of whack.
