There was a time when I had a dozen different jumpers and a few coduory dresses in my school wardrobe. DH laughed when I put some in the attic just in case I go to live at the OLD TEACHERS' HOME some day.

Haha! I remember when Laura Ashley was so popular. My pride and joy was forest green wide wale corduroy dress. I also had two of her print jumpers. Soooo shapeless like maternity clothes used to be. What was I thinking?
And speaking of maternity clothes-isn't it amazing how all the newscasters/weather girls/actresses who are nine months pregnant wear totally tight fitted dresses? What a change from the old days!!

When I subbed elementary, I would use button covers for every different holiday, season, or even topic we were studying. That, along with the red Sally Jesse Rafael glasses, bubble perm, and oversized maxi skirt or jumper really made me a fashionista~

jumpers

When I read the title "Teacher Jumpers" the first thing that came to mind was that there were some teachers ready to jump ship because they were so fed up with the system. Then I realized you were talking about clothing. I can honestly say that I never owned a jumper in my entire adult life because my mom made me wear them all through middle school.

When I retired my "theme" clothes retired too. Off to Goodwill. The primary students loved the characters on my clothing but that part of my life was over. I still can't believe the silly things I wore. The cite young teachers feel no need to wear clothing for their classes and good for them!!!

Well, they were comfortable!!

Remember when you could so easily spot an elementary teacher in the grocery store or mall... just by the clothes she wore?

Not anymore.... well, maybe.... it's those darn t-shirts that are now so popular with the faculty... the ones they made us buy every year!
I hated wearing those box-shaped t-shirts!

I don't think I ever want to wear another t-shirt with a saying stamped on it ever again!

Have you forgotten the elegant teacher "jewelry" we wore? Dangling skeleton earrings, twinkling tree light necklaces, Musical Easter Bunny pins, and the like? Give me a comfortable Laura Ashley corduroy jumper any day (and believe me, I wore more than my share over the years!) At least those were designed for people. What about all that holiday jewelry?

When I retired, the two young teachers I was mentoring at the time were bequeathed my whole stash. Not a single scarecrow or turkey or shamrock is left in my dresser. If my DH wants to give me jewelry now, it better be the real deal!

I loved my jumpers. I am still waiting for them to come back into style.

I used to have those wonderful teacher jumpers. I also had the big sleeve and collar blouses that were just made for these outfits. Corduroy dresses, yes!I love the idea of saving them for living in a retired teachers' home... too funny.

I had orange skeleton earrings, flashing Christmas pins, elephant earrings...the kids loved it. Also silly socks and t-shirts. Things you would never wear in the real world!
