    Prom Chaperone Tips

    Prom for my school was a few nights ago and it was the 6th prom I’ve chaperoned. Now, my school is very small so things on my tips/what I’ve learned list is probably going to be different than top tips for someone chaperoning at a large school. Nevertheless, I think I’ve come up with a few things that are basic/universal enough to be applied anywhere. Every year my students ask me what I’m going to wear to prom. I always re-wear a dress from a wedding or party that is appropriate i.e. not too revealing or fancy. So when I tell students “I’m going to wear a dress, but not…

    Getting Ready for Prom….As a Chaperone

    Prom comes around every year and unless you’re a high school teacher, hair stylist, or makeup artist you probably don’t give it a thought when you’re in your 20s. This is my 3rd year as a high school teacher and my 3rd prom as a chaperone. I’ve put together some information and tips on what I wore this year and my reasoning. The question we all ask ourselves for various events is “What should I wear?” As a chaperone I know I need to dress with a certain degree of conservativeness, but at the same time not “old” because after all I am in my 20s. This is tricky  because…
