I get mistaken as a student at the school I work at. How can I establish my authority in the classroom as well as on campus?

I am a young teacher as well in my early twenties. I make sure to dress professionally whenever I am on campus to differentiate myself from what the students wear. This means avoiding tee shirts and hoodies.

i wore nothing but 3 piece suits my first 5 years. i figured i had to command the respect i had yet to actually earn as a new teacher. some people may feel differently, but at least for me, i had to look professional, doubly so because at that time i had zero experience to bring up if anyone questioned my authority. dress and act like you're still going to the job interview... it worked for me.

This. I left March 27 a classroom set up, materials and toys out. We were allowed 1 hour to get teaching materials from our room. This. I wanted to fall into the floor and cry.

Am I the only teacher who doesn’t have family or friends willing to help with their classroom? I’ve moved rooms every year for the last 5 years and I have a large family and lot of friends, but no one is ever willing to help. I told my mom today that it really hurts my feelings, as she declined my request to help as she simultaneously asked ME to help do something for my sister’s house. I explained I’m always there when people need me, but I feel let down when I’m in need. Anyone else?

We're returning to the classroom! I haven't taught live, in a classroom, since Friday, March 13, 2020. Ack! This is also my first full year as a teacher. I have four of my students and 3 students from the younger class coming to my hybrid class for three hours M, T, Th, F, starting this Thursday. Any ideas? Tips? Rules? I have lots of ideas, but figured I should pick the experts' brains, rather than freaking out and spinning my wheels. I'm feeling very high anxiety today. Thanks!
