    All the emotions I have felt during those years!!

    I missed 6 to be home with my kids, so this is year #23 for me, 16 in the same school.

    My husband is finishing year #26 in his school.

    This is my 30th year. All except two years have been in the same grade and at the same school. I may have the years, but I certainly don't have the means to retire!

    I would hav 20 years but I taught for a year then stayed home for 10 years and have taught now for 10 years. If I had not stayed home I would be at 21 years but I loved being home for a while with my kids even though we no extra money for those years.

    Same here... had I not stayed home to raise my kids I would have had 27 years now. (though each of my years away was filled with some-sort of educational volunteering-no credit for those though)

    Sheeesh... that level of the pay scale would be so nice right about now.

    Did she start when she was really, really, young or is she 70?????

    I stayed home 3 years so that would put me at 26 and a half. I had to go back because we were so broke then.

    Not as easy as it sounds to count my years. 1 1/2 years subbing, a half year doing very part time teaching, 2 more years in my district not under contract (hourly Title I teacher), 25 years and 1 month under contract.

    I think it's 22 or 23. All at the same school. I'd have to stop and figure it out, and right now I think I should go to bed.

    A moment ago

    It says I joined in 2003. Im betting it was further back. I posted no end in sight way back. The end is in sight. I have 10 days of teaching left after 40 years.
