In the belief that such things are very Western, my school encourages me to wear jeans, sneakers and t-shirts to work.

this is called maintaining professional standards
That’s great. If you are in the US, you will fit right in with the grade 8 boys.
Gotta love being a Westerner and working in the East, eh? As long as it’s not an Asian company.
Bill — fortunately all my students have to wear a uniform tracksuit!
push the envelope! try wearing PJs to school! Or a bikini!
I loved that I didn’t have to wear slacks, dresses or nice shoes to school. I quickly learned that I didn’t have to when I saw all of my fellow teachers wearing blue jeans everyday of the week.
I wish all jobs in the US were like this. That would be awesome.
I know! When I taught in the US, I were skirts, hose, dress shoes, makeup, everything.
I wouldn’t wear anything ripped to work here, but jeans and sneakers have become our foreign-teacher uniform.
