Being a teacher can be a difficult yet extremely rewarding job. Research by the Department for Education found that more teachers find their job enjoyable than people who work with solely adult colleagues. The chance to be able to educate children and potentially guide them towards their future career can be very gratifying and give a real sense of achievement.  The salary isn’t bad either, starting at £21,804 and of course there’s the school holidays including six weeks off in the summer which all other working adults are envious of, although some of this time is taken up with marking! The recent Channel 4 TV show Educating Yorkshire has been a huge success and has even won a National Television Award. It has shown behind the scenes access of how schools run day to day. It also gives pupils an insight into what their schoolteachers are like outside of the classroom environment and that they don’t always wear suits or smart dresses! Most people study at university before taking up the profession and they choose whether they want to work in primary, secondary, college or universities. Each different tier can bring different challenges, from young reception children just starting out, to unruly teenagers.

Teachers often use costumes to interact with their pupils. Whether it be in a drama class, re-enacting a historical event, role play, or a Christmas party, fancy dress can help students to learn in an entertaining way. One of the main occasions when teachers wear fancy dress is on World Book Day when the children dress up as their favourite book characters and the teaching staff join in the fun! Many female staff tend to choose longer length dresses or outfits with trousers to ensure they are dressed appropriately for the classroom.

Alice In Wonderland : A long blue and white dress with a headband

Wenda - Wally’s girlfriend from the Where’s Wally series: Red and white striped top, blue skirt, striped tights and a bobble hat.
