    Year 39 for me. Began my career teaching Headstart. Have taught in private schools, public schools, opened my own school when my kids were little so I could keep them with me, have homeschooled...
    I am now in my second year at the school I plan to retire in (when I get around to it!)

    I'm on year 20. I've been with the same school district the whole 20 years, but I've been in different capacities during that time. I've been in my current position since the building opened in 1998.
