Teacher Wears Same Outfit in 40 Consecutive Yearbook Photos
After a teaching career that spanned 40 years (1973-2012), Dale Irby, 63, has left behind a legacy of yearbook photos in which he is wearing the exact same outfit year after year. According to the Dallas Morning News it began as an accident:
“I was so embarrassed when I got the school pictures back that second year and realized I had worn the very same thing as the first year,” said Dale, 63. But his wife, Cathy, dared him to do it a third year. Then Dale thought five would be funny. “After five pictures,” he said, “it was like: ‘Why stop?’”
Dale was a physical education teacher at Titche Elemntary in the Pleasant Grove area of Dallas. Aside from a great sense of humour, Irby was a well-respected teacher and even had the gymnasium named in his honour. Let’s give a hand to Dale and countless other amazing teachers around the world!
