    Year 6, same school, same grade. We did departmentalize for a few years, but we are back to self contained.

    Kudos to you Alice. I think it's wonderful we have people who are willing to stay in this business that long.

    I'm on year 12 this year.

    Starting my 12th year on a permanent contract. I subbed for two years before that (with 2 long term jobs for 13 months of that two years). Before my kids were born, I taught in 2 private schools for 2 years each and worked for Easter Seals in their preschool program for 2 years. Add it all up and I've been teaching, in some capacity, for 20 years!

    I started teaching in 1965 when my fourth grade teacher needed a cigarette and would head to the little office above the library and let me help other kids doing assignments. Officially this is my 34th year and 27th in the same school.

    This is my 5th year (all in the same school) but I do not see myself in the classroom forever or for even that much longer. I plan on getting my degree in administration so that I have some other options.

    This is year 5 for me of full time teaching - this is the first year that I'll be at the same school two years in a row, and it feels great not to have to move or learn student names!
