    This is year 25 for me.

    All of my years have been in the same district. I started at the high school and moved to the middle school after two years.

    Are you going to work until you physically can’t anymore? What about retirement? If you keep this up, then you will just live to work...

    As a novice in the profession I say CONGRATS to all of you and keep pushing on! We need you guys to be our role models! It's refreshing to work alongside 20 + year veteran teachers who STILL get up and go to work every day , give it their all (despite how difficult the profession has become) and LOVE every minute of it! It gives me hope for the future!

    I have! (after this school year)

    Wait....why did I put an exclamation point....I am really old (47).

    I have taught many grades, taught in various settings, and classrooms.

    A colleague of mine has been teaching for 35 years. She is 62. On the other hand, another colleague of mine has been teaching for 4 years and is 31. Both teachers are in my department.

    I’m finishing up number 25. I work with two teachers who are finishing up year forty.

    I can retire in four years but won’t be able to afford to retire until eighteen years due to insurance changes from the Texas legislators. If I didn’t need medical insurance, it’d be easier to retire.

    I am 5 years younger than my husband, so I may retire when he does. I have my health, I enjoy my job, I get enough time to pursue other interests, and I will only be working part time starting next year. Seems to be the ideal of situations for me.

    I'm finishing my 35th year. I was in private schools for 22 years, so I can't retire yet.

    You didn’t contribute to a Roth IRA or 401k? Why not?
